Secretary of State John Kerry is in Iraq discussing with the government of Nouri al-Maliki the issue of its support for Iran’s aid to the Syrian government. Each day planes from Iran fly over Iraq headed for Damascus with more weapons and ammunition for the government of Bashar al-Assad. There is something ironic about an American diplomat urging Iraq to cease supporting Iran. It was just ten years ago that the Sunni led government of Iraq headed by Saddam Hussein opposed Iran and wanted to destroy its government. Thanks to Iran’s dearest ally, the Bush administration, the anti-Iran government was destroyed and a pro-Iran government came to power. George Bush was the best friend of Iran since he also destroyed the anti-Iran Taliban government in Afghanistan!
Republicans continue to insist: Iran is our enemy. The Iraq war was justified. The ignorance of Republicans in the Middle East is only matched by their ignorance of economic policy. Elect Republicans if you desire rule by the ignorant!
