"...."A visit to Iraq without the dictator is a truly happy one," Mr Ahmadinejad said yesterday. "A developed, powerful and united Iraq is to the advantage of everyone."
It is true that Iran wants Iraq to stay united under a government led by the religious parties, all of whom have links to Tehran fostered during years of exile. Iran is also determined that Iraq should never become a platform for the US from which attacks can be made on Iran......"
Hope your behind the scenes negotiations with the Great Satan went well, Mr. President. Don't worry about those 170,000 US troops in Iraq; they are there to prop up your man Maliki who asked them to stay. See, the Great Satan and Iran can work together as a team; only the Iraqi people lose. But that is not your worry I am sure, Mr. President.
