The Second Biggest Story of Last Week
Basically, Iraq is choosing its alliances, and it wishes to draw closer to Iran. Iraq is thumbing its nose at America and making friends with its neighbor, going so far as to allow Iran to train Iraq's military! Is there any question that we are on the verge of seeing an emboldened Iran in the Middle East? Basically, the US did for Iran what Iran could not do during its long war with Iraq- it destroyed the Sunni (anti-Iranian) government and empowered the Shi'a (pro-Iranian) population. Brilliant!
Basically, American taxpayers and soldiers paid for (and died for) Iran's entry and expansion into Iraq.
Is it any wonder that this story was hardly covered by the American media? Its basically the beginning of the end in Iraq.
