Because the MSM is so biased against the war in Iraq, it is positively stupid about what is going on in the Middle East and fails completely to understand the game plan. Too many Democrats are really too stupid about international politics to be allowed ever to be in charge.
It is true that Iran is more a danger to us than Iraq. So Japan was a danger in WWII yet we never invaded Japan. How could that be? We invaded the Phillipines who were not our enemy. In this case, like what was going on during WWII we have an enemy that is Islamic Fascism. We are taking out the weaker links first. We must establish a beachhead, so to speak in Iraq, to be able to go after Iran. We may never physically invade Iran. Each war is different. Iranians mullahs clearly understand what is going on , that is why they are lending support to the "insurgents". A democratic, western leaning Iraq on one side with a democratic, western leaning Afghanistan on the other presents a terrible danger to the mullahs. It is all about geopolitics-- i. e. the territory which is controlled and how it enhances or subtracts from one's ability to make war. In other words, by fighting in Iraq, we ARE fighting the Iranian mullahs. There is no question about it.
