    'US bribing Iraqi MPs to sign deal'

    The US has offered bribes to Iraqi MPs to lure them into endorsing a security deal that critics believe would make Iraq a US colony.

    Sources in Iraq's parliament told Press TV on Thursday that Washington has offered three-million dollars in bribe to the lawmakers who sign the "framework accord."

    Under the agreement, the US would be allowed to set up at least 13 permanent military bases in Iraq and US citizens would be granted immunity from legal prosecution.

    Iraqi lawmakers, however, vowed that they would never sign the agreement which would turn their country into 'a US colony'.

    The accord has faced strong objections from religious and political figures inside and outside Iraq.

    Iraqi Shia cleric Moqtada al-Sadr has also protested the deal, calling on the people to hold demonstrations after every Friday prayers against the accord.

    The country's most revered Shia cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani has formerly objected to the deal, saying he would not allow the government to sign such a deal with "the US occupiers" as long as he was alive.

    Well MP's taking bribes is an integral part of Democracy. It's practically expected. Perk of the job.

    Ideally they should be taking bribes from their own country's military and businessmen though.

    "Well I'm sorry ma'am, it seems the man who raped you and your goat and stole all your stuff had a US passport. Our hands are tied. We've already let him go. You should aplogise to him for wasting an hour of his time by complaining about this - you know the law."

    Iraq will become an imperial possession of the U.S./Zionist Empire whether the Iraqi 'democracy' likes it or not.

    Bribes is what's done here all the time, but I think they're called "pork".
