Wait. I thought Iran was part of the axis of evil? Furthermore, I thought we were winning in Iraq?
This article in the New York Sun has confused me. It says that despite the fact that Iran hates America and Israel, and despite that fact that our soldiers are dying and we are spending billions of borrowed dollars there, Iraq is actually making efforts to get closer to Iran.
What’s wrong with this picture?
As America is trying to negotiate an already problematic new long-term security pact with Iraq, we hear this:
“Mr. Maliki, after arriving in Tehran, the Iranian capital, Saturday, had said his government ‘will not allow Iraq to become a platform for harming the security of Iran,’ according to the semi-official Fars News Agency.”
“But despite American reservations, ties between the two nations continue to grow, and Iran has signed an agreement to supply electricity to Iraq and build power plants in several Iraqi cities.”
Could it be that McCain, Bush, Lieberman, and the rest of the dead-ender neocons are wrong on Iraq? Could it be that Iraq really was the biggest strategic mistake in our nation’s history and that no matter what we do there, we are screwed? Maybe I’ve got to get outside the bunker more often…this is scary…
