Iran Vows to Help “Brother” Iraq

TEHRAN — President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran would do whatever it could to help provide security to Iraq amid warnings the country was on the brink of civil war.

Mr. Ahmadinejad made the pledge at the start of a visit to Iran by Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, whose trip was delayed for two days because of a curfew imposed after bombings Thursday that killed 202 persons in a Shi’ite Muslim stronghold.

Political analysts said Iran might try to use talks with Mr. Talabani to show off its influence to the United States and bolster its position ahead of any talks with its old enemy. They also said Iran’s ability to stem the bloodshed was limited.
U.S. officials have said the violence is being spurred by Iran’s backing for Shi’ite groups and its weapons exports. Iran dismisses the charges.

Keep in mind Iran’s goal: Destroy the “Great Satan” (USA & Israel) to bring back the messiah. Anyone else a little nervous about this partnership?
