Is this the week Iran won the Iran-Iraq war?

I read the news today and got a cold feeling inside. Have we just spent all this blood and treasure to create the perfect opening for an oil-rich anti-western Iran-Iraq alliance, complete with US-trained and armed troops? And will Bush’s great purple-stained success this week turn out to be yet another naive move by wide-eyed, naive, idealistic conservatives, and perhaps the biggest strategic blunder in modern US history?
I sure as hell hope not.

    My friend Mark Lew, who knows more about world politics and history than anyone else I know, says a full alliance of Iran and Iraq is unlikely. He posted a comment on my blog sketching why, and he has analyzed this in more depth on his own blog.
