TEHRAN, Iran - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad boldly declared Tuesday that U.S. political influence in Iraq is "collapsing rapidly" and said his government is ready to help fill any power vacuum.

The hard-line leader also defended Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, a fellow Shiite Muslim who has been harshly criticized by American politicians for his unsuccessful efforts to reconcile Iraq's Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds.

"The political power of the occupiers is collapsing rapidly," Ahmadinejad said at a news conference, referring to U.S. troops in Iraq. "Soon, we will see a huge power vacuum in the region. Of course, we are prepared to fill the gap, with the help of neighbors and regional friends like Saudi Arabia, and with the help of the Iraqi nation."

I may be wrong but it looks like Iran and Saudi Arabia are getting into position to oppose the United States in Iraq. This is going to get much worse.....based on his past performance Bush is going to make sure it does.

Get ready for war. The Decider will push a confrontation with Iran and if Iran don't bite will either have Israel launch an attack or will have our military launch an attack on Iran.
