  •  Yes, I Diaried it Yesterday (0+ / 0-)

    And we got some really good conversation - my final take is that this could be BS from and Iraqi minister who wants to broaden the conflict and ensure the U.S. sticks it out. Who knows, maybe this is carefully placed U.S. propaganda.

    Here's the diary entry with some historical analysis.

    •  Interesting that few in the media (0+ / 0-)

      are discussing how we've alienated Turkey and made it easier and more logical for them to align with Iran wrt the Kurds.

      Nice job there, Condi and your lapdog Hadley. And where was your predecessor Powell when this was all happening? Sounds like a total screw-up to me.

      It seems pretty clear that BushCo are trying to use the Iranian nuclear "threat" to distract from and hopefully negate their political woes and massive policy failures, one of which was allowing this situation to develop where Turkey and Iran become allies over the Kurds.

      I can't tell if this story is planted or real, but it certainly wouldn't surprise anyone who's studied how BushCo operates to find out that it was planted. Shades of their crazy plan to paint an airliner to look like it was from the UN to provoke the Iraqis to shoot it down and create a causus belli.
