U.N. supports U.S troops staying in Iraq

Did you know there was a UN mandate for America to be in Iraq? All all this time We were told it was an illegal war! From Yahoo/AP:

The U.N. Security Council agreed Wednesday to an Iraqi request to
extend the mandate of the U.S.-led multinational force after the country's
foreign minister said the troops were "vitally necessary."
The council also
strongly condemned the bombing of Samarra's revered Shiite shrine and urged all
countries, especially those in the region, to support
Iraq' name in its
pursuit of peace.

Even Russia supported the World Body's decision:

Russia supported the extension of the multinational force's mandate
but said the council must "signify the deadlines" of the foreign military
presence in Iraq, which its ambassador, Vitaly Churkin, called a "serious
irritant for many Iraqis."

I agree with that last part as well. So, if Al Qaeda and Iran will stop interfering with the country's internal affairs, then the US can leave.
