Leader: Iran destabilizing Mideast

— The leader of the Iraqi bloc that came first in elections accused Iran on Sunday of trying to destabilize Iraq and manipulate the political process as he jeered at rival politicians seeking Tehran’s blessing for forming the next government.

Ayad Allawi, a secular Shiite, narrowly won the most seats in the March 7 vote with strong Sunni backing but did not get nearly enough to control the government outright. That allowed his chief rival, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, to sideline the Iraqiya political party that Allawi heads by forming a Shiite-dominated alliance similar to the current government and close to Iran.

Allawi’s remarks were a clear jab at al-Maliki, who heads to Iran today as he scrambles for enough Shiite support to keep his job.

Like the BUSHCO invasion and occupation has stabilized Iraq,Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The longer the USA gov't stays the more lives that are lost and the more trillions go down the war machine money hole.

Bring the troops home!
