#4 Keep in mind that the Democrats and the media has always wanted the war in Iraq to turn into another 'Vietnam' [war].

From Harry Reid's "The war is lost" to this they have worked tirelessly to create a new 'Vietnam II' to relive their glory days of the 70's.

I think their only regret is there wasn't a huge loss of American lives and planeloads of body bags returning (or not returning) to accompany their accomplishment of turning Bush'es War into a complete failure.

#8 Fear notteth, I say, SecState Jaawhn + OWG "Co-Superpower" Riusing Iran is coming!

* DEMOCRATIC UNDERGOUND > AP NEWS, WAPO = KERRY: US WILL SUPPORT IRAQ, BUT WIDOUT [sending in any US]TROOPS.

That's what Iran + Hezbollah + anti-Assadian domestic, regional opposition groups are for.

OTOH, iff Bammer-promised $$$ + Arms were, how should I politely say, [snail-like]"slow" in reaching the anti-Assad FSA + aligned, WILL THE SAME COME WEIRDLY-N-MYSTERIOUSLY SUDDENLY
"FASTER" NOW THAT FUTURE OWG CO-SUPERPOWER RISING IRAN + ITS PROXY HEZBOLLAH ARE AMERIKA'S NEW BFFS???

Will the US-NATO/Allies be arming Iran in exchange for Iran not dev or deploying NucWeapons, at least for a time???

DITTO NOW AS PER AQ-THREATENED IRAQ? POST-2014 AFGHANISTAN = AFPAK? OTHER???

Lest we fergit, IRAN + its PAN-PERSIAN/IRANIAN UNION will eventually be at odds or in competition agz US NATO ALLY TURKEY + TURKEY'S DESIRED PAN-TURKIC UNION.

* TOPIX > [Tehran Times] IRAN READY TO PROVIDE MILITARY AID TO IRAQ TO DEAL WID TERRORISTS.

* RELATED BIGNEWSNETWORK > IRAN READY TO HELP IRAQ BATTLE AL-QAIDA: IRAN'S MILITARY CHIEFS.
DEPUTY CHIEF OF STAFF MOHAMMAD HEJAZI SAID ON SUNDAY THAT THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC [of Iran] WAS PREPARED TO PROVIDE MILITARY EQUIPMENT + ADVICE TO IRAQ TO HELP IT BATTLE AL-QAIDA.

Whew, dats a long title.

VERSUS

* TOPIX > [Bloomberg] AL-QAEDA FALLUJAH ATTACK SHOWS GROWING POWER AMID SYRIA WAR.
