WASHINGTON - A top commander of U.S. forces expressed doubt Sunday that negotiations between the United States and Iran over Iraq would help bring peace and stability in the Middle East.

"I don't have a lot of confidence that these will turn out to be productive, but I could be wrong," said Gen. George W. Casey, the top commander in Iraq.

"They're playing, I think, a very delicate balancing act," he said of Iran. "On the one hand, they want a stable neighbor. On the other hand, I don't believe they want to see us succeed here."

The Bush administration agreed last week to talk to Iranian officials about Iraq after a nearly three-decade break in diplomatic ties between the two countries. U.S. intelligence strongly suspects Iran has been arming Iraqi Shiite militia and some insurgent groups.




Does anyone see the U.S. on an Irani battlefield in the next 3 years?

Three years? No. within two weeks? yes.

Sort of a preemptive opinion there, the general has.

He’s a smart man, he knows more about the political and military situation in Iraq and in the region than probably most of us, so in all likelihood he is right. Just incase you're wondering, General Casey is the commander of all the forces in Iraq.

But dg, what about the propaganda campaign?! Gotta give time for that to fully do its selling job! After all, a movie ain't much fun without the previews! Or the popcorn.
