Iran and Iraq's actions prior to the U.S. elections

Reader comment on item: Tehran holds Obama re-election wild card [in Iraq]

Submitted by Lily (Canada), Dec 20, 2011 at 05:45

Perhaps the actions will be two fold, mildly increase America's misery overseas in order to boost America's resolve to leave the area; and then do nothing prior to the election that will enhance a strong opposition to those now in power and to those who naively support withdrawal and do-nothing policies. That is, until AFTER the election; then more demands and horrors will ensue. This strategy of seeming reasonableness and stated willingness to compromise etc., is ALWAYS followed by outrageous demands and vicious attacks. Remember, the concept is not the lying it is whom you lie to.
