"Then we will all be slaughtered..."

story via NYTs' excellent Iraq journalist: John Burns

[Iraq (Sunni) Vice President] Tariq Al Hashimi asked this senior American official, "is your Congress really serious about withdrawing troops?" And the American official said to him, "you`d better believe that it may be. This is a serious debate and it`s very finely balanced, and it could - it could fall in favor of withdrawing those troops and withdrawing them on a fairly rigorous, tight schedule." Tariq Al Hashimi responded to that by saying "then we will all be slaughtered, then we will all be slaughtered."
