As Democrats prepare their refutations of the yet to be presented General Petraeus report on Iraq, Iranâ€™s President Ahmadinejad is already planning his takeover of that country. In the past, Ahmadinejad has encouraged the American people to place Democrat politicians in power. Tragically, for the 2006 midterm elections, Ahmadinejadâ€™s strategy appears to have worked and he is, again, counting on US Democrat leaders to pull the United States out of Iraqâ€”in opposition to all recent reports from both Democrats and Republicans that the surge is working. This will allow him to seize the country. If the Democrat leadership is successful in pushing its continued and planned retreat-in-the-face-of-victory pullout from Iraq, Ahmadinejad is prepared and has already announced that he will help his US pals. He will fill the â€œpower vacuum.â€
At a recent conference in Tehran, Ahmadinejad announced: â€œThe political power of the occupiers is collapsing rapidly. Soon, we will see a huge power vacuum in the region. Of course, we are prepared to fill the gap, with the help of neighbors and regional friends like Saudi Arabia and with the help of the Iraqi nation!â€ By â€œhelp of the Iraqi nationâ€ we assume the Iranian president is referring to those Iraqi Shiites who are loyal to Iran. And by â€œneighborsâ€, Ahmadinejad may actually be referring to the US Congressional Democrat leadership. In working toward his goals, they have definitively exhibited a most neighborly attitude toward the despotic Iranian leader.
