    To do for Iraq what the Iraqis refuse to do for themselves, eh?

    What would the USA get out of that deal?

    I'm going with Maliki's failure to be inclusive-that's what led to this.

    Let the Iranians have the Shiite part of Iraq, that pretty much means that they will be tied up fighting the terrorists there for decades to come, it shouldnt be the US problem anymore.

    The Iranian regime does not operate like the West. With no desire for democracy, human rights or development, it would simply slaughter the opposition like Assad.

    I like that idea, let them deal with the terrorists in Iraq and Syria, that should keep them pretty busy.

    Regarding Iraq, it would be over virtually overnight. The Iranian regime has no interest in development. If it did, it would allow the people online.

    The regime would slaughter a million people or more and rule over Iraq just as it does Iran.

    The fault in your logic is thinking the Iranian regime cares about development.

    None of the US govt's wars are ours. Unfortunately, we still have to pay for it, compliments of the brain-dead critters on Capitol Hill.
