Lets Get Real:
As this blog has noted, the politics of the Middle East can be murky and ironic, so now US air planes are attacking IS targets in Tikrit in support of Iran's forces in Iraq. The Tehran Regime and the Baghdad Regime started the battle for Tikrit without asking for US cover, they thought they could do it on their own. The battle has stalled, Iraqi and Iran forces have seen many of their troops killed by IS, thus this call to the US for support. Also this could be a strategic win for Obama, now that Iran needs US support is the time to pressure them when it comes to their nuclear ambitions, in other words get a better deal. The Republicans will go with this issue, and most Americans will be wondering, what happened, Iran has supported terrorists that have killed many US troops, and now the US air force is their cover. MURKY AND IRONIC.
