Iraq and Iran: True love blossoms
Aren’t you glad to know that the expenditure of precious American blood and perhaps two trillion dollars of our treasury has won a close new ally and friend . . . for Iran?
(NY Times) Iraqi Leader Asks Iran for Help With Security
BAGHDAD, Iraq, Sept. 12 — In his first state visit to Iran, Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki today discussed the security situation in Iraq with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran and asked for Mr. Ahmadinejad’s support in quelling the violence that threatens to fracture this country.
“We had a good discussion with Mr. Ahmadinejad,” Mr. Maliki said at a news conference in Tehran, the Iranian capital, after the two met. “Even in security issues, there is no barrier in the way of cooperation.”
Mr. Ahmadinejad said that “Iran will give its assistance to establish complete security in Iraq because Iraq’s security is Iran’s security.”
Yeah that’s just swell.

Silenced Riverbend told us since months and months, that Iran rules the region: Movies and Dreams…
“The horrors of what happened to the POWs in Iran lived with us even after the war. The rumors of torture- mental and physical- came back so often and were confirmed so much, that mothers would pray their sons were dead instead of taken prisoner in Iran…
The agony of the long war with Iran is what makes the current situation in Iraq so difficult to bear- especially this last year. The occupation has ceased to be American. It is American in face, and militarily, but in essence it has metamorphosed slowly but surely into an Iranian one.
actually, it seems that Iraq was the last wall against the power of Iran - the power of a democracy-killing theocracy
Mr. Bush, for your profit - in dollars and power - you destroyed a foreign nation, you offered innocent people on a silver platter to their killers and rapers - and not only “plain” killers and rapers, no their special arch enemies. It wasn’t enough to maim, kill and rape them, no, you had to humiliate them
and why? Because you want to profit - but, alas, the profit is totally on the side of your enemy “Iran”
Well done, Mr. Bush! You proved without any doubt that, that greed and self-overestimation can’t compensate lack of intelligence

Bush, his administration (Condi, Rummy and Dick), and his propaganda branch (Fox News) keep racheting up the rhetoric against Iran. If Iran and Iraq form a military (militia based) alliance against the United States in the Region, we can only prevail if we take on a massive, WWII-like, effort in men and material.
This is madness.
