Al Jazeera English - News - 'Us Is The Main Irritant In Iraq'

Al Jazeera English - News - 'Us Is The Main Irritant In Iraq': "In an interview with Al Jazeera, al-Dhari says the slight improvement in the security situation in Iraq 'is due to a decision by the Iraqi government to reign in its death squads'.



He concedes that the 'resistance has temporarily' retreated in the face of US-funded al-Sahwa (Awakening Council) militias 'but that the resistance is regrouping and will bounce back'.



Al-Dhari, who hails from a family reputed for its role in the nationalist resistance against British occupation in the 1920s, says the US presence has allowed other powers to meddle in the country's affairs. He belives an US withdrawal will solve many of his country's present woes."
