And guess what, deejay? If a democratically elected country emerges that doesn't export trouble to the rest of the world, and just happens to be strategically aligned with Iran, I'd *still* call it a win. ===========That's a big if Dope. It is hard for me to believe that exporting trouble wouldn't be at the very top of their agenda, if the Iraqis fall in line with Iran.Iran started funding Hizbullah almost 30 years ago. Exporting radicalism is nothing new to them, it is the main feature of their foreign policy. Now the Iranians seem to be in competition with OBL for the 'moral' leadership of the Jihad oriented Muslims, using Holocaust denial, the Zionist Entity and the Great Satan as the usual battering rams.This Iraqi gamble has huge, huge stakes, and in a way, we have already lost big time because, imo, Iran (and China) have seen our weaknesses and limitations and that has emboldened them. People say we can't pull out because of Iraq because of the message it would send to terrorists, but we have already sent a message and the Iranians belligerent behavior is an effect of that strategic (mis)calculation.Dov
