This does not compute

"We are there at the invitation of the Iraqi government. This is a sovereign nation. Twelve million people went to the polls to approve a constitution. It's their government's choice. If they were to say, leave, we would leave."

- President Bush, yesterday (he has said the same thing in 2005)

But then, only two weeks ago, we learned this:

[W]ithout note in the U.S. media, more than half of the members of Iraq's parliament rejected the continuing occupation of their country. 144 lawmakers signed onto a legislative petition calling on the United States to set a timetable for withdrawal.
Hmm, sounds like it is time to set some timetables, declare victory, and go home.

Oh wait, nevermind:

"We're not leaving, so long as I'm the President."
