Guard or Democracy: Sectarian Choice?

The Iranian Republic is against a Unified Iraqi Democracy
(already taken to vote by the Iraqi people.) Thus, their
interference is clearly an attempt to subvert a government:

LAST WEEK:

Iran upgraded the post of its representative
in Iraq: Hassan Kazemi Qomi, from
charge d'affaires to Iran's Ambassador to Iraq...
Hassan Kazemi Qomi: 1st Iranian Ambassador
to Iraq, after 26 years. (Since 80's)

THIS WEEK:
Ahmadinejad: No need for Iran-U.S. talks on Iraq

The Iranian president demanded that U.S.-led forces in Iraq
“step aside” and allow the Iraqi people to govern themselves.

-He demands that the U.S. "Step Aside"?!-

In the words of Iran's New Ambassador to Iraq:
“We do not deny America has interests here (in Iraq) and we
do not act as a barrier to those interests, but we do not take
orders from the Americans,” he replied; speaking from within
his heavily fortified embassy.

In a Nov. 1st report from Iran Daily

U.S. military intelligence and the American-backed Iraqi Nat'l
Intelligence Service say that Ghomi is a member of the Iranian
Revolutionary Guard Corps’ elite Quds Force, a special forces
outfit much like the Green Berets, with specialized skills in
working with local forces and militias.
A senior U.S. military intelligence officer claims, “Ghomi is
Quds Force,” and part of a “full-spectrum effort” by the
Revolutionary Guards to garner influence in Iraq...
Likewise, British Prime Minister
Tony Blair and other senior officials had claimed there is
evidence that a series of deadly attacks on troops in
southern Iraq are the work of Iran and the
Lebanese group Hezbollah.

“Tehran has nothing to do with
the recent bomb attacks in Iraq."

Kazemi-Qomi statement::

"I stopped my military service years ago."
(The Baseej continue to be a major pillar of
support for hard-line president Ahmadinejad)

IRAN: Sabotage & the Mullah Wars
"You were evidently spared the
fate of the rest of the Senior guard."-M.B.

The diplomat, however, suggested
that Iran would prove a better partner and
guarantor of Iraqi stability than the U.S.
