Bush Diplomatic Triumph-Iranian Diplomats In Iraq

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad hailed a new chapter in close ties between his nation and its former enemy, Iraq, as he stepped foot in Baghdad to be greeted by Iraqi leaders. He was the first Iranian leader to visit Iraq since the eight year war between the countries. Iranian leaders have no one else to thank for this opportunity than their wonderful American ally, George Bush, who defeated Saddam Hussein and ushered in an era of Iranian influence in Iraq. It leads one to wonder if President Bush is not some sort of secret ally of Iranian clerics.

The Iranian government is caught in a quandry, they want to make things difficult for American forces but they also want stability so the Shiite government of Mailiki can exert its power in the country. Ahmadinejad said: “A developed, powerful and unied Iraq is to the advantage of everyone.” Of course, no Sunni political leader attended ny sessions with the Shiite Iranian president. There were scattered protests by Iraqi Sunnis all over the nation.
