(1) We invaded Iraq to depose Saddam Hussein, a Sunni Muslim, who suppressed the Shiite minority over the years.
(2) We are now scared that the Shiite-led government will collaborate with the Shiite Government of Iran.
That makes perfect sense.
According to the Daily Telegraph:
Lt Gen Firouzabadi added that Iran was now "ready to expand its military and security ties with Iraq."It continues:
US analysts have expressed concern that Iran could exploit the vacuum left by the US withdrawal to bolster links with Iraq's Shiite-led government.New readers, please note the irony.
