IRAQ AND IRAN….FRIENDS AGAIN….I read about this a couple of days ago but then lost track of it after hearing about the London bombings. Luckily, Needlenose reminds me: Iraq and Iran have signed a military cooperation agreement.
In one sense this is unsurprising given the success that Iraq’s Shiite parties enjoyed in the January elections. Still, $1 billion in aid and Iranian help training Iraqi troops is….disturbing. This is something to stay tuned to.
