The End of the Green Zone?
Posted by Adam Blickstein

An increasingly emboldened Maliki government just dropped another bombshell:

The green zone of Baghdad, a highly fortified slice of American suburbia on the banks of the Tigris river, may soon be handed over to Iraqi control if the increasingly assertive government of Nouri al-Maliki, the prime minister, gets its way.

A senior Iraqi government official said this weekend the enclave should revert to Iraqi control by the end of the year. “We think that by the end of 2008 all the zones in Baghdad should be integrated into the city,” said Ali Dabbagh, the government’s spokesman.

“The American soldiers should be based in agreed camps outside the cities and population areas. By the end of the year, there will be no green zone,” he added.

Now I know Maliki is just a "politician," but this coupled with the Iraqi government's previous statements demanding a withdrawal timetable for foreign troop is a real indication that the rhetoric is more than just political posturing.
