Colonel,

Chalabi and his INC will most probably side with what saves their personal skins first, their Shia side second.

Colonel,

don't you love being a 'retd.'? i sure do. :-) lol. no more bag drags, late nite phone calls, no more being mr. ghost, no more tehenna and tabouli on a 'regular basis'. lol now i can sit back and make google eyes at my lovely wife. don't you love your 'gold card' that you now carry in your wallet? life's grand, get to wear bib overalls and stretch your toes. and wiggle them in a pond when one wants to. lol

Is democracy an unlimited "good?"

is it wrond to say that with the war on Iraq we have completed a major part of the Islamic Revolution for Iran; although many years later?

Angela,

Thanks for answering the question. pl

One of the ways to see the developing situation in Iraq is as a complete failure on the part of the neo-Jacobins here to see that the Iranians would come out on top if the Iraqi Shia were enabled to the extent that we have attempted. Now we see Khalilzad in Baghdad trying to stick his finger in the dam to hold back the flood. pl

Angela,

Thanks for sharing. We can always benefit from an explanation of reality. pl

Speaking of personal skins, I hope I can get out of Baghdad if someone is crazy enough to bomb Iran, because we are finished in Iraq if that happens.

And then there is "south federalism" as they call it here. Would that be the new western region of Iran, out to Karbala governorate?

atrios comments link seems interesting, the ranks are thinning

par for the course?
"The lawyer, Roy Krieger, said his client initially asked the CIA's inspector general to investigate allegations that CIA officials had pressured him to alter the intelligence and retaliated when he refused. But the inspector general rebuffed his request.

''If the CIA is telling him to falsify information, that's potentially a crime. This merits an investigation, and if the CIA's not going to do it, the only other place is the FBI," Krieger said. An FBI spokesman declined to comment."


As for Chalabi and Iran, that was the two bottles of perfume missing from the Niger embassy.

Perfume is the traditional gift of weddings in Persia. Iran and Iraq each get a gift of their new marriage union.


By the way Chalabi has an asset in the media on AP wire. He puts out anti Iran stories despite listing that as his byline location, and only making stories in English.


Doesn't use dominant language, breaks the rules of Iranian press with no hindrance, and makes stories which have been proven wrong but continually recycled for talking points.

Sounds like an obvious double asset, if he's legit. Probably is not and is submitting AP feeds from outside the country for propaganda.


He was one of the front page story higlights on Huffington Post yesterday, his story got pulled after my comments about him.

I'd name him but you can find who he is. He's featured on the ILF page a lot.

October Surprise anyone?
