The US Government grows suspicious of the now established Summit meeting between, Iran, Iraq and Syria. The US believes that Iran made a move on the current obligations set by the US Government to help expand a broader support to Iraq from Iran. The US seems now a little wary about what is truly going behind the borders of Iran. There has been many statements by Iran to help Iraq, but not until now has there been any real effort to do anything.
WASHINGTON - The Bush administration cast a wary eye Monday on signs that
Iran and
Syria were taking a more active diplomatic role in
Iraq, even as debate in the U.S. centered on how many troops to keep in the war.

Just days after reports that U.S. officials were discussing a broader role for Iran and Syria, Iraqi lawmakers said Iranian leaders had invited the Iraqi and Syrian presidents for a weekend summit. A State Department official said that while strong relations between the three countries were encouraged, actions would speak louder than words.

In the past, said deputy spokesman Tom Casey, "while there have been positive statements from the Iranian government about wishing to play a positive role in Iraq, those statements haven't been backed up by actions."

U.S. leaders, meanwhile, continue to debate how long and how many troops to keep in Iraq.

As always the US government is concerned about their welfare in other countries hands. But it is looking quite well with the current views that Iran is actually standing up to the plate after many talks about helping Iraq's continuing war efforts and terrorist attacks. Iran and Syria have always held political problems with the US, but this Summit meeting could bind all three nations of Syria, Iraq and Iran together, leaving America to be a factor in political relations with Syria and Iran.

The US is also still mounting a heavy debate on whether or not to pull all or some of the troops out of Iraq. The problems are occurring within the decisions to not leave American soldiers in Iraq to train the Iraqi solders to fight.

I truly doubt this will go too far. Sunnis and Kurds anyone?

And I also truly doubt Iran's intentions are "sincere".

Establishing connections is fine and friendships, but Iran must not be allowed to infiltrate Iraq.
