Catastrophic Sovereignty

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- U.S. jets pounded suspected Shiite militant positions in the Baghdad slum of Sadr City on Monday, killing at least five people and wounding 40. Elsewhere, insurgents detonated two car bombs, killing seven members of the National Guard in the latest attacks targeting Iraq's beleaguered security forces.
It's probably not in the definition, but it seems as though a nation might be said not to possess full sovereignty when it's capital city is being bombed by a foreign power daily and that power has 130,000 troops occupying the country.
