You mean we've been helping Iran this whole time?

The Daily Mirror, the British tabloid that English royalty have come to love to hate, today ran the story that is currently literally all over the web.
Who has been the main beneficiary of the War on Terror? Iran.
And it goes quite far, actually. Iran is the major power in Iraq because of us.
As the Daily Mirror writes:

PRESIDENT Bush’s war on terror has made Iran the most influential power in the Middle East, a report warned yesterday.
It said Iran’s standing had superseded that of the US, following mounting instability in the region.
And it found the Islamic Republic had benefited dramatically by the American-led ousting of its great rivals – Saddam Hussein and the Taliban.
The report warned: “There is little doubt that Iran has been the chief beneficiary of the war on terror in the Middle East. The US, with coalition support, has eliminated two of Iran’s rival governments but has failed to replace either with stable political structures.”
The verdict of respected think-tank Chatham House is an embarrassing blow to President Bush and Tony Blair.
It is highly critical of US meddling in the Middle East and said instability in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as Israel’s failure to defeat Hizbollah, had strengthened Iran’s standing under President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Arms and fighters and money to Iran, a marginalizing of non-Islamist interests, and giving creedence to perhaps the most Hitler-like figure on the stage of world politics today.
War on Terror: Mission Accomplished.

  1. Absolutely. If in any war we don’t achieve success in every single battle, immediately, we must quit fighting. If at first you don’t succeed, concede. Ever read about what kind of 1942 the Allies had? If you’d been in charge then, none of us would be here now.

  2. “Ever read about what kind of 1942 the Allies had? If you’d been in charge then, none of us would be here now.”
    To say nothing of the U.S. Civil War.

  3. You do realize, you patriotic wise-asses, that in 1942 the allies were fighting the germans, not handing out candy to them?
    Also: Mr. Aahmediwhatever is nothing close to Hitler, simply because he can’t kill all the Jews even with an a-bomb.
