Unintended Consequences (Iran and Iraq)
Quote | Reply
Long article in the NYT discussing how the US invasion of Iraq has worked out for Iran. Summed up with the following quote.

"“Iran is smarter than America,” said Nijat al-Taie, a Sunni member of the provincial council and an outspoken critic of Iran, which she calls the instigator of several assassination attempts against her. “They achieved their goals on the ground. America didn’t protect Iraq. They just toppled the regime and handed the country over to Iran.”"

Some say "I can". Others say "I can't". Both manage to be correct.

Unintended, but certainly not unpredictable.

We are so fucked.
