On Jamestown Kataâib Hezbollah and the Intricate Web of Iranian Military Involvement in Iraq By: Thomas Strouse I do hope the friends of Qom get stuffed in the Iraqi election, the Iranians may have overplayed their a hand with al-Lamii and Chalabi's de-Baathfication antics and Saudis have been pumping cash in as they did in Lebanon so this may not be in vain. Jamestown also has No Place Like Home: Iraqâs Refugee Crisis Threatens the Future of Iraq By: Rachel Schneller My bold, so much for draining the swamp.

Barry has made no improvement on that short sighted policy, there are risks here that can at least be mitigated. New terrorist threats are already manifesting in Lebanon and Syria. Judging by the history of terrorism in the region it will be a couple of decades hence when we reap what we have sown.
