Fox News: Obama administration under pressure to turn attention back to Iraq So, we kick Saddam out, help them establish a democratically elected government, then change presidents, strategies, and priorities. And what are the Iraqi people supposed to do? The vast majority of them want a free country, a democratic government. It is the fanatical minority that want Sha'riah law and a theocracy. The problem is, it is that nutball minority that has all the weapons, because immediately after we left, Iran started smuggling the weapons in to the al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist groups. It has been suggested that we could fast-track F-16s -- an obsolete aircraft from our standpoint -- and Apache helicopters to the Iraqi military, but the administration "doesn't want to get entrenched that deeply." So essentially, in "reversing" Bush foreign policy, we've told our friends "tough -- learn to defend yourselves." Great policy.
