I don’t think we should waste one more dollar or life on these scumbags — Maliki and friends have clearly cast their lot with the Iranians.
For sure, we should NOT let Iraq have any further access to US arms and especially not to our technologies. We must now operate on the assumption that anything we let into the hands of the Iraqi govt. or military is shared with Iran.
We sure as hell should not let them have F-16s or any missile, guidance, drone, and radar technologies of any sort (it may be too kate..).
Why is it a bad thing if Sunnis are engaged full-time in destructing the Shi’ites, and the Shi’ites are returning the affection? When both sides are devoting their time, treasure and manpower to this worthy goal (eliminating Muslims from earthly existence), they are much less likely to be spending resources to promote mischief against the West in general and America in particular.
When any kind of assistance is extended to any regime that supports militant Islamic Jihad, or uses it for their gain in influence in the world, then that only works to the disadvantage of the rest of the world that happens NOT to be Muslim. Muslims do not share power once they gain it. They are the ultimate “My way or the highway” people, except then they go out and blow up the highway.
