Interesting fellow. The degree of Iranian influence is difficult to measure though.

Joel Wing said...

Its huge in Iraq and growing. There are Iranian advisers on the front lines. Iranians are flying the SU-25s. The militias get funded, armed, trained and directed by them. There are also allegedly regular Iranian troops in Iraq as well, not just the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Quds Force.

Very surprising??
There is change in heart and mind for Joel>
I use to highlight this years ago in this site and Joel keep hid stand of denial or refusing to agree on it.

Now he starts talking here about Iran and their inflectional apparatuses inside Iraq.

Dawaa Party was midwifed by Iran Malki, Jaafari, Hakeem, Saddr all Iran thugs in their hearts and minds, they are 2nd face for one coin “KHOMINIE “

President Bush, in an off-camera conversation with us in 2007 said, "That Maliki is a son of a bitch, but we have to deal with him."

Joel Wing said...

Sadr has been an opponent of Iranian influence for a long time and remains so. Why do you think he never sent any fighters to Syria? Maliki had a very mixed relationship with Iran as well. Remember he left Iran in the 1980s when Tehran tried to take over Dawa. The increasing threat of IS led him to open up to Tehran more.

You seem to just be taking a blanket view that all the Shiite parties are pro-Iranian without looking at their complicated relations over the years, and specifically what's been going on security wise in 2014.

First before making these accusation about me and misleading readers here about me, you do not know Iraq and Iraqi, you are one of those set in his comfort zone trying teach us what you think with you view which is lack some realities of Iraq.

I have no doubt that you and most of write about Iraq, and you specifically do not know what’s Sunni & Shiite.

Now you “taking a blanket” that me I presume all these parties are pro_iran??

Its not me Joel talk to any Iraq he will tell you man, go do you homework well before throw your “blanket” on me.
Da’awa and other parties there were Iranian in heart and mind this not make up by me their act and their behaviour talking loudly on my voice, but the deaf can hear that.

Joel Wing said...

The Sadrists and Badr are two different organizations.
