Ahmadinejad to Visit Iraq

This morning, Cookiewrangler sent me the link to this story:

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is planning to make his first visit to Iraq, the highest level trip by an Iranian leader since the fall of Saddam Hussein.

Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki invited Ahmadinejad after he visited Tehran earlier this month, the ISNA student news agency reported.

"This invitation has been accepted and the preparation is underway. When the trip becomes definite we will make an announcement," Mottaki said in Iran's holy second city of Mashhad late on Sunday.

She asks: "WHY, WHY -- Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki invited Ahmadinejad -- here we are losing people and these two are getting friendly???"

While I'm certainly not thrilled that Ahmadinejad is being welcomed with what seems to be open arms by Prime Minister al-Maliki, I can, I think, understand why he is. You see, al-Maliki is in a very precarious position. With American Democrats and RINOs clamoring to pull out of Iraq as quickly as possible, he's likely very worried about the aftermath of such a situation. Iraq is not yet capable of fending off a serious advance by Iran or any other sizable and unfriendly Middle Eastern nation. So what to do? Make a friendly overture to the biggest bully in the sandbox and hope that, if the occasion arises, that the bully will remember the suck-up gesture and not be too cruel as a result.

Al-Maliki is buttering both sides of the bread. And we have the political pandering of the Democrats and RINOs to thank for it.

Any other thoughts on this situation? Comments, please!
