Iran Iraq and Afghanistan,Sobering personal thoughts!
I see more and more as our leaving the cities got closer what I saw as a fact the day the idiot ignored all good advice against attacking Iraq and that is an all out war Sunni against Shiite and don't forget the Kurd's and other sects then spreading throughout the middle east. Iraq got its sovereignty back and a day ahead of time. Now we will see how bad if at all they really want Democracy and equality. They may want Democracy but with Sunni or Shiite dominating and that is the problem that will not go away.
More than 6 years after Bush's illegal attack we still have 131,000 troops there. They may be out of the big cities for now but they will be back. Remember, Bush wanted a permanent Korea style force there should I say more specifically in the middle east. Like it or not that will be the case for the indeterminable future unless we are smart enough to pull out and regroup right here in America. Obama is not that smart and neither is anyone else in power or near it.
The Iran backed Shiite is said to be behind the increasing violence. They are increasing their care and IED murders as they do their damnedest to get this new middle east ()dis)order in full swing. Don't forget the Kurds who want their own sovereignty but this will be Sunni against Shiite and will eventually engulf the entire middle east. You see what's happening in Iran. There is a bigger reason for it than Iran.
Remember the most senior Ayatollah in Iran is living in Najaf, Iraq and has not been in Iran since the 1979 Revolution as he disagrees with Khamenei and his hijacking of Iran. what roll will Sistani play in the new middle east order? What role will he play in the future and why is he still sitting on the sidelines or is he?
250 people mostly Shiite were killed last week alone in this "success" we handed over to Iraq. Just as I was putting this together I heard there was another car bombing in Kirkuk no report of deaths yet. The hell on earth Bush created for Iraq when he attacked will soon get under way. I am sorry to say this because like you I was powerless to stop this but I guarantee you the entire middle east will be engulfed before it consumes the entire world.
Mark my words! All this plus what he did to the US is because of the "success" of the Alcoholic egomaniac who left the White House proud of his destruction. He attacked Iraq to get into the Middle east to "straighten it out" Remember, the idiot said he talked to God and he was doing God's work. 6/30 was declared National Sovereignty Day in Iraq as fireworks were fired and people danced and celebrated in the streets. I can just wait watch and listen expecting the worst but hoping for the best.
One of my sons that has been to both Iraq and Afghanistan more than a few times leading EOD teams. He has been trying to prepare my 20 year old who will be going to Afghanistan in December to do the same thing. They are the nuts who drive in the huge tractor like vehicles to hopefully find and disarm IED’s. He said if you touch the vehicle when it hits a 500 pound stack at the very least what ever is touching the vehicle will be broken. It is only going to get worse I wish it would end and quick! I can only wonder what is next as Afghanistan too is getting worse.
Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan? remember the Gulf. I lost track of it but we had 3 carrier Battle Groups in the Gulf and France had the Charles De Gaul guarding the entrance. Anyway if this blows up as I expect Obama is poised to deal with all those countries right from the Gulf but what about Russia who also has nuclear assets there and whose troops in Iran were long ago ordered to protect their interests?
