Iran: Bribing Iraq And Snubbing “That One”

Well, I can find this story in international papers, and small U.S. ones, but, none of the big U.S. news sources, other then the Washington Post. I wonder why?

The commander of US military forces in Iraq has accused Iran of trying to bribe Iraqi legislators into rejecting a security deal with the US.

Gen Ray Odierno told the Washington Post that many intelligence reports suggested “pay offs” were being made, but that he had no definitive proof.

The US and Iraq governments are negotiating a security pact to allow US forces to stay beyond the end of 2008.  

See, now, if I was one of the Reality Based Community, I would probably blame this on Obama, and suggest that the Obama campaign is behind this, in order to damage what we are doing in Iraq. But, I’m not. What we are seeing is the continued attempts by Iran to impose influence over Iraq. Imagine had we followed the “redeployment” plans of Obama and other Democrats.

And, how about Obama’s no preconditions for talks buddies in Iran think about talks?

Vice President for Media Affairs Mehdi Kalhor said on Saturday that Iran has set two preconditions for holding talks with the United States of America.

In an exclusive interview with IRNA, he said as long as US forces have not left the Middle East region and continues its support for the Zionist regime, talks between Iran and US is off the agenda.

It is the Americans who are in dire need of reestablishing ties with Iran, he underlined.

Iran is not obliged to reestablish ties with the US, he said.

“If they take our advise, grounds for such talks would be well prepared,” he said.

It is stupidity to hold talks without any change in US attitude, he underlined.

Of course, Kahlor is only one voice, and a small one, and even a president Obama wouldn’t be that dumb to listen to those conditions. I hope. One never knows what kind of surrender post-Vietnam Democrats will accomplish.

    It’s not just Obama. Henry Kissinger also believes we should begin direct negotiations with Iran without conditions.
