Once upon a time, the American government attempted to create conditions for peace in the country of Iraq, but each time this effort was attempted, forces of religious hate assumed control of the situation. American military leaders warned and warned the government of Prime Minister Nouri Maliki to work closely with Sunni leaders in order to establish stability and calm in the country of Iraq. Shiite Prime Minister Maliki had but one desire –establish a Shiite religious state that was akin to the wonderful Muslim government in Iran. So Maliki drove out Christians, and then proceeded to either jail or drive out Sunni leaders in order to create the perfect little nation of Shiite Iraq. He rejected US aid, he terrorized Sunnis, and guess what happened?
Sunni Iraqis fled to the arms of radical Muslim terrorists and made certain the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant became powerful. This group took control of Mosul and now threatens to march on Baghdad. Maliki makes Saddam Hussein come across as the guy you want to lead Iraq. The only good news for Maliki is that Iran is furious that its protege is being attacked. Iranian President Rouhani has pledged military support for Iraq soldiers.
Let me get this straight:
1. The US invaded Iraq in order to build a barrier against Iran.
2. Shiite Iraqi leaders want to work with Iran.
2. So, Americans are gone, and now we can expect the arrival of Iranian troops whose goal would be to preserve Iraq.
