Iran Ready To Fill Vacuum In Iraq Left By US

From his fans at Reuters:

Iran says ready to fill vacuum in Iraq left by U.S.

By Edmund Blair

TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran is ready to fill a vacuum in Iraq caused by the collapsing power of the United States, its president said on Tuesday.

“The political power of the occupiers (of Iraq) is being destroyed rapidly and very soon we will be witnessing a great power vacuum in the region,” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said.

“We, with the help of regional friends and the Iraqi nation, are ready to fill this void.” Saudi Arabia was one of the countries Iran was ready to work with, he said…

The region did not need countries from “thousands of kilometers away” to provide security, Ahmadinejad said, and U.S. and other forces in Iraq and Afghanistan had run out of solutions.

They are trapped in the swamp of their own crimes,” Ahmadinejad said. “If you stay in Iraq for another 50 years nothing will improve, it will just worsen.”

In Washington, the U.S. State Department dismissed Ahmadinejad’s comments as “unhelpful” and said Iran’s claims to care about the people of Iraq were undermined by its support for violent militias…

But isn’t this exactly what penis-mouth Senator Jim Webb and the other far-sighted Democrat foreign policy mavens and their minions in the media are calling for?
