    Iraq Says It Backs Iran's Right to Nuclear Program

    May 26 (Bloomberg) -- Iraq supports Iran's right to use nuclear technology for peaceful means and wants a diplomatic solution to the standoff between the Islamic Republic and the U.S. over uranium enrichment, the Iraqi foreign minister said.

    "In our view the Islamic Republic has the right to have nuclear technology as long as it is for peaceful means," Hoshyar Zebari said today in a press conference from Baghdad broadcast live by Dubai, United Arab Emirates-based al-Arabiya television station.

    Or perhaps the Iraqi leaders realize that a war between the U.S. and Iran will end up impacting the Iraqi people rather quickly.

    Also true...

    I don't think anything can go on in the region with out some "spillover" effect...

    Love to be a "fly on the wall" during the non-public portions of those meetings...
