    Iraq will buy armaments worth $13 billion from the United States by 2013 and will spend another $13 bn on weapons later, a Baghdad newspaper reported citing an Iraqi Defense Ministry spokesman.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    What will the Irania reaction be?? USA has tightened sanctions on Iran. IPI cancelled and Russians prevented from selling weapons to Iran even defensive ones like s-300.

    That's OIL for you. Also, a strategic move by US to keep it's foothold near Iran's borders. US with it's 11 CBGs does not even need this in any case. But Shia Iran and Sunni Iraq have always been at war, cold though most of the times.
