By now, you gotta figure Tehran’s on their speed-dial. Hesiod waxes wroth:
Let me get this straight. The Bush administration is too proud to admit mistakes, and seek the help of traditional ALLIES like France and Germany to stabilize Iraq, but it WILL go begging the IRANIANS to use their influence to quell the situation?!?
Hm, yes, that is a surprise. Secretive Republicans publically denounce Iran, while covertly soliciting Iranian help. Yeah, never seen that before. [01:07 PM]

So much for our desire to reduce Iranian influence, lest a Shiite theocracy emerge. But then, hey-- who knows WHAT the new Iraqi government will look like, right? That's what Mr. Bahiri is trying to figure out!

Well... hey, we just pissed off 3 or 4 million Palestinians by negotiating away their right of return for them... shall we level Najaf and piss of a coupla million Shiites while we're at it?

Bet it'll all play well in swing states.
