Well, I can certainly understand one view of this. If I lived in Iraq I would not want any other two nations using my home as a battlefield. Sort of how Canada felt about their airspace during the Lemay-USSR
standoff during the cold war.
On the other hand, WHEN
the US does pull out of Iraq, it seems highly probable that Iran may exploit the new Iraq's weakness and avenge some old greivances. What would Iraq think about the presence of the US military then?
It is easy when listening to Mahmoud OneManJihad to get the idea that he really thinks that is all the trigger it will require to get the world's billion-or so Muslims to rise up against the great Satan. No doubt there is a contingent in every Muslim population on earth - here in the US as well, who would buy into it. But the reality is that we are trading, and other kinds of partners with most Muslim nations and such a war, on the unlikely chance that it did start, would be terribly destructive for all sides.
I guess Ahmadinejad is sort of an Iranian Paris Hilton - who wants a nuke.
Happiness is not seeing another trite Ste. Maarten photo all week long.
