Full-sovereignty looks a lot like occupation

Sec. of State Powell said today that Iraq would have not have "a veto over military operations."

Hmm...that sure seems to clash with the Bush Administration's assertions that the Iraqi government would have "full sovereignty."

Powell then went on to say that
"The Iraqi government is sovereign and... it has said that we consent to the presence of coalition forces, we want coalition forces there, we are going to coordinate and cooperate with each other"
How can the "government" currently be sovereign if there has been no official transfer of power? And how can said government agree with the continual occupation by U.S. troops, if it has yet to be finalized??
