Iraq sovereign - two days earlier 

Get one sovereignty, and we'll throw in for you two days extra for free:

"The handover of sovereignty to the interim Iraqi government took place at 10:26 a.m. local time Monday, two days before the June 30 deadline previously announced by the U.S.-led coalition."
It's two days earlier, "to try to thwart guerrilla attacks," said officials quoted by Reuters. That seems like wishful thinking - the jihadis who are exploding car bombs are equally hostile to the Coalition presence as they are free and democratic Iraq; hence the attacks against Iraqi security forces and Iraqi political parties. So the violence won't magically stop, but it's now up to Iraqis to take the responsibility for dealing with the enemy within.

Iraq - you've got my best wishes for the future.
