Saudi and the US officials need to work on getting there yes man into the helm.....This is the only way they would be able to counter Iranian influence....The sectarian government of Iraq needs to be eradicated but Iraqis never learn. Glad that they start to stand up to Iran's influence inside Iraq. Iran was never a model to go by and never will.
The pro-Iran lot from Iraq and outside Iraq are working hard to demonize the protestors and to dismiss the protests. Those people really should keep their noses out and let Iraqi's demonstrate to achieve their stated objectives.The sectarian government of Iraq needs to be eradicated but Iraqis never learn. Glad that they start to stand up to Iran's influence inside Iraq. Iran was never a model to go by and never will.
