I wonder if the U.S. government has ever asked the Iraqi government the following question:
If the war started between U.S. and Iran, on which side the Iraqi government will be?
Please notice that the prime minister and the majority of the current Iraqi government were exiles before the U.S. led invasion in 2003 and if it wasn’t the U.S. these guys will be outside the country.
What do you think their answer will be?
Please remember the Iraqi government is an Islamic government led by Islamist. Many of them were living in Iran for more than 25 years.
Many members of the current Iraqi government prefer to speak to you in Persian rather than Arabic
Now can you imagine on which side they will prefer to be.
After all the difference between Iran and Iraq is just the last letter, for them i suppose.
