Obama: Iran Could Play Constructive Role in Iraq
ABC News ^ | June 19, 2014

Posted on 06/19/2014 11:10:04 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

President Barack Obama says Iran can play a constructive role in Iraq if it sends a message that Iraq's government must be inclusive and respect the interests of Sunnis and Kurds.

He says that's the same message the United States is sending.

But Obama says if Iran comes into the conflict solely as an armed force backing the Shiite-led government, its involvement would probably worsen the situation.

Sure, the Iranians will play a constructive role in Iraq.

They will govern it!

Maybe they can set up a few more centrifuges there to spin more uranium.

This is what happens when you leave a power vacuum. The closest bad guy(s) fill it.

Iran is about to own Iraq. Took a few decades but they are ready to take the spoils.

The concept of the power vacuum has been all but relegated to the ash heap of history.

Our withdrawing from to world stage, it’s going to result in something. Folks ARE NOT going to like it.

Sadly, they just can wrap their heads around that concept right now.

When they can, it will be too late.

He’s reduced to nonsense like this, isn’t he? He can’t oppose Iran and he won’t side with them. All that’s left to do is lecture them.

How many of our soldiers have they killed? 8 died trying to rescue the hostages they took. Hezbollah is their proxy army responsible for killing around 300 Americans and French in the Beruit barracks bombing.

Wiki claims that an intercepted diplomatic cable instructed the Iranian ambassador to "take spectacular action against the American Marines" less than a month before the bombing.

Here is another link that lists lots of other Americans that were killed or captured by Hezbollah.

Let's just spit on their graves.

Hey, sure, why not? we already gave the Russians our Missile silo count and location, we gave our allies the boot, we reniged on our promises to be the United States of America,we trashed our heritage and founding principles, we gave aid to all our enemies and shunned our true friends so hey, why not get Iran in on it as well and when they go Nuclear, then we can ask them to pretty please not use it as a weapon of blackmail against the planet so, sure go ahead President Obama show ‘em your cards and while your at it, take a deep bow.

No worries for Obama. The MSM will spin this as him being “cool and smart”.

I heard that one third of all Americans killed in Iraq were killed by Shite militias trained by Iran and armed by Iran. The Iranians trained them in Iran.

Thanks for the agreement in principle with a terribly sloppy post. Glad you got it and agree.

It’s true. Iran could play a constructive role in Iraq. It’s also true that Benitobama could play a constructive role in the U.S. However, the likelihood of either event taking place is nil.
