Re "In war's wake, Iran fortifies foothold in Iraq" (Page A1, March 29): In the Iraq War, 4,500 soldiers dead and 30,000 were injured and for what?
President George W. Bush and the infamous neo-cons lied through their teeth about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction and the need for the Unite States to invade Iraq. Iran becoming chummy with Iraq was predicted years ago. All Iran had to do was be patient and wait for the US to leave.
Secretary of State John Kerry can't even get Iraq to track flights to Syria by Iran.
