Iran To Fill Iraqi "Power Vacuum"

By Wyatt Earp | August 28, 2007

“President Tom” continues his nonsense and tomfoolery. And what is America doing about it? Not a damned thing:

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned Tuesday that a power vacuum is imminent in Iraq and said that Iran was ready to help fill the gap.

“The political power of the occupiers is collapsing rapidly,” Ahmadinejad said at a press conference in Tehran, referring to U.S. troops in Iraq. “Soon, we will see a huge power vacuum in the region. Of course, we are prepared to fill the gap, with the help of neighbors and regional friends like Saudi Arabia, and with the help of the Iraqi nation.” (H/TDrudge)

I have two immediate thoughts about this story. First, does it surprise you that Ahmadinejad included Saudi Arabia in his grand power grab? How many times do I have to tell you? SAUDI ARABIA IS NOT OUR ALLY! And secondly, will someone – anyone – please tell me who will adequately deal with Iran after the ’08 election? Hillary Clinton? Barack Obama, The Breck Girl? John McCain? Who? I don’t see any candidate with a Reagan Backbone on the list, and that is exactly Iran sees, as well.

President Bush, or someone in Washington D.C., needs to break out their Ronald Reagan impersonation, right quick: “My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws [Iran] forever. The bombing begins in five minutes.”
