We freed the Iraqis from Saddam Hussein, and they pay us back by letting Iran fly over their territory to arm the Syrians. Thank you, George W. Bush.
Under Hussein, the minority Sunnis ruled Iran. Now the majority Shiites have taken over to form a powerful coalition with Shiite Iran, a major supporter not just of the brutal Assad regime but of terrorists like Hamas and Hezbollah.
Not the outcome we were looking for, but one we should have seen coming once Hussein was gone.
