“Every Arab country has a stake in not having a failed Iraq.”
I wish that were true. But it’s not.
Syria very much wants us to fail in Iraq – Dictator Bashar al Assad has said so, he said long ago that his aim would be to transform Iraq into another Lebanon.
The Saudis don’t want us to succeed. Why would they want a tolerant and free democracy on their border?
The Iranians are not Arabs – but they working hard to ensure our failure.
Kerry also said the Europeans want us to succeed. Britain, Italy and Poland do.
But Jacques Chirac, I think, would prefer to see us pulled down a peg or two.
