The increasingly violent influence of the Iranian regime is nothing new. The Iranian regime is responsible for over two thirds of attacks against U.S. forces in Iraq. So, what is the United States going to do about it? „No one should miscalculate America’s resolve and commitment to helping support the Iraqi democracy,“ Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on NBC’s Meet the Press. „We have paid too high a price to give the Iraqis this chance.“
She reiterated on Sunday October 23 that no one, in particular Iraq’s neighbor Iran, should doubt the American commitment to Iraq.
The question is, how? How is the United States going to counter the Iranian threat in Iraq after it leaves, when it couldn’t accomplish that objective when tens of thousands of U.S. soldiers were in Iraq?
