Thanks to the shrill and proven wrong anti-Bush sentiment engendered by the likes of Obama, the US once again left before the job was finished in Iraq. Just as Clinton did in Somalia, we have left many tens of thousands of good people in a position of imminent death. Since the election of Obama and the flooding of government positions with people dedicated to undermining US security interests and its leadership in any anti-terrorist international resolve, we have seen the Obama administration actually supporting elements in various countries, who end up attacking our closest allies and killing our own troops. How and why, you might ask, has Obama in three years been able to undermine the whole war on terror? Why has he informed Iran of Israeli military positions? Supposedly supporting sanctions against the virulent strain of Islam in Iran wanting to cause WWIII, Obama arranges methods of Iran skirting the sanctions. Obama has proven himself and his people as enemies of a Free World.

Iran and Iraq have the same roots, common history and they should cooperate and help each other. They are wonderful ancient countries with ancient cultures just like Afghanistan, Syria, which should be allies too.
