TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has accepted an invitation to visit neighboring Iraq, Iran's foreign minister said on Sunday, a move that would be unlikely to be welcomed by the United States.

Foreign Minister Manoucher Mottaki said Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki had invited Ahmadinejad after Maliki visited Tehran on August 8-9, but added a final decision had yet to be taken.

"When a definite decision about the trip is made, the timing will be announced to the public," Mottaki told reporters in the northeastern city of Mashhad, according to the ISNA news agency.

I cant wait for the US admin to pucker up and let Ahmadinejad stroll around.

Now we'll see where the militia's lie.

also interesting to note this little develoupment:

BAGHDAD, Iraq - American forces are tracking about 50 members of an elite Iranian force who have crossed the border into southern Iraq to train Shiite militia fighters, a top U.S. general said yesterday.

Ahmadinejad is too prime a target for sunni militia..

I can't see the US allowing a trip by the Iranian Prez to Iraq, despite all the talk about Iraqi sovereignty by the US administration.

As for the story about the 50 Iranian military guys crossing into Iraq and being tracked, I call BS on that one. The US is desperate to show any Iranian involvement in Iraq so would have snapped them up at the earliest opportunity, not go public and tip them off allowing them to disappear to scuttle back to Iran.
Perhaps someone has a little "incident" planned which will be blamed on these Iranians, thus ratcheting up the tension and justifying a US military response.

That reminds me, whatever happened to those Iranian guys abducted by US forces in Iraq? The ones who were there setting up a consulate at the invitation of the Iraqis. They seem to have disappeared into the ether.

It will really say something about US values here.

We regard IRAQ as a democratic nation, they make their own decisions.

They invited the leader of a neighbouring nation for talks.
We have no say any more, who can or cant visit this soverign nation.

Maybe he's the perfect target for Sunni insurgents, American detention or alqaeda?

Either would kick start something big.

What are the chances that Irans President is going to Iraq to kickstart a Iran/Iraq partnership that may develope one day into a joing nation of Persia or a greater Persia?

Its just an idea and a concern Ive allways had, and it kind of seems like the NWO is allowing and helping Iran to build itself up and move forward to become the new superpower in the mid-east to antagonize the west.

Is this all a part of the NWO chess game?

Wouldnt Ahmadinejad be a sniper target? regardless of who were to attack him, the US would surely get the blame and could fire up a new war with Iran, would it not?
