Iraqis Concerned about their future, despite Obama's assurance that Iran will protect them

President Obama's decision to withdraw US troops from Iraq is not sitting well with many Iraqis, who are concerned about their country's future, despite Obama's pledge to enlist the help of the Iranian regime to stabilize Iraq.

Sitting in his small room in northern Baghdad, a pistol nearby and assault rifles stacked under the bed, Khalil Ibrahim is worried over Iraq's future.

Six years after the U.S. invasion, Iraqis are contemplating the reality of life after a major milestone -- Tuesday's withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from urban centers.

Glancing at his seven-year-old son playing a war game on a computer in the corner, Ibrahim, a chain-smoking former military intelligence officer, [expressed his concerns].

"Iran has good relations with our political parties. They run militias. If the U.S. troops complete their withdrawal, Iran will do whatever it wants in Iraq," he said, scowling.

Shi'ite-ruled Iran is often accused of arming and funding Shi'ite militias who have killed Sunnis...
Needless to say, I'm a bit surprised at Mr. Ibrahim - for two reasons:

First of all, he should respect the Islamic Republic's sovereignty and refrain from meddling in Iran's external affairs.

Secondly, if President Obama believes that Iran has an important role to play in bringing stability to Iraq, who is Mr. Ibrahim to say otherwise?

Bear in mind that the Iranian government is doing a remarkable job in securing its own future by cracking down on the protesters who are trying to destabilize the brutal regime. Thus, I think Obama is correct in assuming that the Mullocracy is also quite capable of securing and stabilizing Iraq.

And, finally, who is better equipped to make decisions regarding the fate and security of Iraq? Mr. Ibrahim, a mere military intelligence officer? Or, Barack Obama, who has years of community organizing under his belt?

Don't even bother answering that one, it's a no-brainer!
