    Iran won because they were providing most of the IED's that killed and maimed US soldiers and never suffered any consequences for it. They won because their arch enemy Saddam is dead, Iraq is in turmoil and they can now influence if not control it completely.

    In a nutshell, they won because Iran is ruled by Shiites who were enemies of the Sunni-dominated Saddam regime. Now Iraq is dominated by Shiites who are friendly to Iran. I expect they will soon merge and name the country Iranq.

    That's just silly on so many levels, I have no idea where to begin.


    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Saddam was a concern for Iran. No matter what happens in iraq now, that concern has been removed. This helps Iran a lot, which is why they played such a helpful role in getting us in the there. Not to mention yet another place to have messed with us for a some time, and use our aggression against us.
