May be you can tell us what is positive!

..from an Iranian stand point, there are a lot of positive things you did in Iraq (and I am not Iranian) , here are some:

-You eliminated our enemy and put our Shiite brethren in power.

-You allowed our revolutionary guard to train Iraq forces.

-You allowed Iranian armed forces infiltrate 5 Km inside Iraq to fight Terrorist kurd labour party (aljazeera may1st/06). Iran abviously uses the same coin to eliminate remainings of Khalq elements.

-We gave you the choice of the Prime Minister and you gave us the head of parliament in Iraq.

-Even boastfull neighbours of yesterday like the Emir of Qatar where the US has the largest military base are now comming to say Hi to our leaders and sign agreement of friendship and cooperation. (refer to the Emir visit to Teheran may 1st /06)

That is what can be described as positive from an Iranian stand point, what is it that can be considered positive from an American long or short term interest analysis? I tend to agree with Dr Pipes that from an American stand point, what is there is too little to be described as positive.
