Topic: Obama warns Iran its fighters in Iraq must answer to Baghdad

By Jeff Mason WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama warned Iran on Tuesday that its fighters must respect Iraq's sovereignty and answer to the government in Baghdad in the battle against Islamic State militants. Iran-backed Shi'ite militias have played a major and growing role in battling the Sunni Islamic State, an al Qaeda offshoot also known as ISIL, that emerged from the chaos in Iraq and neighboring Syria and which swept through northern Iraq last June. Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi has had to rely on Shi'ite militias, some of which are backed by Iran and advised by Iranian military officers, as Iraq's regular military deserted en masse last summer in the face of the Islamic State onslaught.

In our historical effort from the Iran Iraq war in the 80's to our decade long occupation, our mismanagement of the reconstruction of Iraq and Reorganizing of Iraq's government and military has accomplished the exact opposite of what we set out to do.

Now Iran has a foothold here and combating ISIS is the door for them to access and expand influence in Iraq.

This is the same exact state tactic we used in 2003 with weapons of mass destruction to access Iraq directly.
