The Terror Master at Home
Reading about Iran Dictator Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s visit to Iraq makes me wonder for whom he’s routing in the American election, this year:
In tone and body language, Ahmadinejad’s message during his visit was clear. The United States does not belong in Iraq; Iran does. Iran can and will help in the reconstruction of Iraq, a point underscored by the signing of seven memorandums of understanding between the two countries.
Sadly, far too many Westerners will find it difficult to believe (let alone obvious) that the terror master is not only lying, but is doing so for their consumption:
Another [question] was about whether Shi’ite Muslim Iran would cultivate ties with Iraq’s Sunni groups as well as with the Shi’ite political parties and Kurdish militias it once sheltered and nurtured to fight Saddam Hussein’s regime.
“Our relations with all the factions in Iraq are good,” he said. “This [distinction] may be important for the foreigners. But we view things differently.” …
“Peace and stability will return to the region if the foreigners leave,” he told reporters.
