Ahmadinejad Says Iran Will Do Whatever Is Necessary To Stop Terrorism In Iraq

Thank goodness! I'm so totally psyched that Iran is going to "help" in Iraq.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran would do whatever it could to help provide security to Iraq amid warnings the country was on the brink of civil war.

Ahmadinejad made the pledge at the start of a visit to Iran by Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, whose trip was delayed for two days because of a curfew imposed after a bombing on Thursday killed 202 people in a Shi'ite Muslim stronghold. The curfew was lifted on Monday.

"The Iranian nation and government will definitely stand beside their brother, Iraq, and any help the government and nation of Iran can give to strengthen security in Iraq will be given," Ahmadinejad said, Iran's ISNA news agency reported.

"We have no limitation for cooperation in any field."


Does this mean Iran will stop supplying weapons, expertise, and terrorists to Iraqi/Al Qaeda terrorists? Fingers crossed!

Spot the bias here:

Political analysts said Iran might try to use talks with Talabani to show off its influence to the United States and bolster its position ahead of any dialogue with its old enemy. They also said Iran's ability to stem the bloodshed was limited.

U.S. officials say the violence is being fueled by Iran's backing for Shi'ite groups and its weapons exports. Iran dismisses the charge.

Note the "political analysts" Reuters consulted seem to take Iran's word as definitive, as they seem to be arranged (in the article) as opposing US claims that Iran is actively abetting the terror war. Obviously, if Iran is doing so (which it is), it would have the power to reduce the bloodshed significantly.


And the Iraq Study Group... is about ready to deliver its super-duper smart magic-bullet solution to all of this: ask Iran nicely to stop its 30 year war against the US, pretty please with sugar on top.

A draft of the panel's report recommends aggressive regional diplomacy, including talks with Iran and Syria, the New York Times reported in Monday's editions.

Ah. Aggressive diplomacy. See? They're not just saying we should try to charm the Iranians into giving up on 30 year war and announced plan to destroy Israel (and then us).

We should charm them in an aggressive fashion.
