Iran To Train Iraqi Troops

Former foes Iran and Iraq have said they will sign a military cooperation agreement that will include Iranian help in training Iraq's armed forces.... US and Iraqi officials have often accused Iran of stirring up instability in Iraq. Asked about possible US opposition to Iran-Iraq military cooperation, Shamkhani said: "No one can prevent us from reaching an agreement." Iraq's al-Dulaimi echoed Shamkhani's comments. "Nobody can dictate to Iraq its relations with other countries," he said.

Well, the U.S. can't be happy about this news. I know we have been looking for other countries to help train Iraqi troops but IRAN. The country we have targeted as a haven for terrorists. More to come...(hat tip Bull Dog Manifesto)
