High Postin' When You Far From Home
It will be interesting to see the response to Mahmoud Ahmedenejad's upcoming big visit to Baghdad. A very well informed Iran expert friend of mine noted the other day the irony that American officials make surprise visits to Iraq while Ahmedenejad announces his visit well in advance with great fanfare. Who's got more control?
Yeah, but can A-Jad "walk freely"* around a Baghdad market like Johnny from the Block?*(please note that for purposes of this blog post, the phrase "walk freely" shall mean accompanied by at least 100 US soldiers, three Blackhawk helicopters and two Apache gunships)
