Iran is in there

 

 

that has me very nervous

 

 

 

On the surface, it appeared to have gone better than the justifiable afghan war.

 

 

And, IMO, democracies in the middle east undermine the bad guys main rallying argument.

 

 

 

 

But I have been reading and seeing reports that peace has been made with Iran and they look to Iran as an ally and not so much with the US.

 

 

 

The idea of Iran and Iraq as allies is, IMO, worse case scenario.

For a while, Iran was bracketed by two enemies... Sadam and the Taliban.

 

Obviously we had to get the Taliban aftr 9/11. 100% justified.

Iraq....

 

Now Iran is seeing a chance to flex their muscle....

Because, according to our honest leader, the occupation is over, it's a win.

 

All the troops are coming home right?

From Iraq and all over the Middle East.

No boots of any kind on the ground over there.

Don't need them there anymore.

 

Wait, is the occupation really over?

Thats Hussein in October 2002, at a rally in Chicago.  What do you think of that quote?

no, I never forget them. Better is a relative word.

 

 

 

I suppose the lesson we learned is playing out quickly in the rest of the middle east and northern Africa.

 

 

 

If you want a government out, back the rebels with air support and special ops on the ground. You end you in a better situation, except you don't have public resentment as occupiers.

Which 'Occupation' was this? Never did the US take over 'Control and Authority' in Iraq.
