Iraq telling you? is that a joke ... ha ha ha ha ... ok, I had my laugh. Iraq is just a puppet nation, nation of people ... you've put into power. If your government wants to leave they'll leave ... and of course, the little puppet uses the opportunity to bolster his position amongs his countrymen, by saying "go home". You already intended to go home, and so it's no harm done.

But, that ain't why the US troops left ... so drop that stupidity.

Oh, and on a side note ... the US has bases in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Saudi and on the Turkish border ... and it sure looks like Iran is surrounded ... with guns pointing at it, from all around. :-)

Nah ... that is just conincidence ... right.

China and Russia with not condone Iran shooting anything that moves in the Strait of Hormuz.

It would be illegal for Iran to shutdown the Strait of Hormuz.

No, it wouldn't ... the Strait of Hormuz is territorial waterz ... of course, it's territorial shared by Saudi. But saudi alone, can't "allow" anything there ... and the international community has not "right" there, except the right they "take".

But, that is just moot point, becuase Iran won't ... they're not that cocky.

I think Iran may be just trying to distract attention away from the civil war in Syria.

Their tough talk is also forcing up the price of oil.

It's all a chess game to them.
