Iran president backs 'united' Iraq
POSTED: 11:18 a.m. EDT, September 12, 2006

TEHRAN, Iran (CNN) -- Iran's president -- hosting a visit from Iraq's prime minister and expressing support for his country's beleaguered war-torn neighbor -- says the Islamic republic supports a "united" Iraq and will help the nation "establish full security," an Iranian news agency reported.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke at a news conference with Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki after private talks were held on Tuesday, the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency reported. It is al-Maliki's first visit to Iran since he became prime minister earlier this year.

"Iran will provide assistance to the Iraqi government to establish full security. We believe strengthening the Iraqi government is tantamount to promoting security, peace and friendship in that country," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying.

If this isnt complicating matters; nothing is. This is a very aggressive move by Iran given the current Geopolitical climate of this situation. I havnt really had much time to absorb the implications and ramifications of this... but it does not bode well for the US plans in Iraq.

What do you guys think about this?

thank you for your time,

I think that it is reasonable to assume that Iran's president wants a united Iraq run by an Islamic clone of the government of Iran. The government of Iran will only be giving aid to suit its one means rather then to foster democracy in Iraq.

This article also proves that if the map of the Middle East had been drawn up on tribal rather then political boundries neither Iran or Iraq would exist.
