I am not sure this is the type of regional stability we want to encourage, either:
Iranian Interior Minister Abdolvahed Musavi Lari, his counterpart from Iraq Bayan Baqir Jabr and the Syrian Minister of Interior Ghazi Kanan here on Wednesday called for tripartite cooperation on regional issues.
During a meeting, the three ministers discussed the procedure for implementing 20-point final statement issued by Iraqi neighboring states on Tuesday.
The ministers also examined ways of preventing illegal trafficking through the borders of the three countries.
The statement, issued at the end of the second session of Iraqi neighboring states in Istanbul on July 18-19, called for implementing UN Resolution 1546 on the legal procedure of formation of a government in Iraq and complete withdrawal of the occupying forces from the country.
The statement condemns global arrogance and terrorism in Iraq under any condition and calls upon the member states to assist the Iraqi government to establish security and tranquility in the country.
Although if all Iran, Syria, and Iraq are doing is issuing impotent statements condemning ‘global arrogance,’ it shouldn’t be a problem. Maybe this is their way of lobbying France for EU membership…
Message to Syria and Iran: you’re next. When the situation in Iraq stablizes — hopefully by this fall — I fully expect a march on Tehran or Damascus. That ought to shut them up.

Funny how the the WH scrubbed it from their official site.
With what military? Are all you hawks planning to enlist?

actually, what will happen is that the US will march into Syria, then turn right around and invade Iraq again, overthrow the government (since its working with founding member of the Axis of Evil, Iran) and start all over with a brand new, clean slate occupation of Iraq that nobody can criticize because we haven’t screwed up the “new” occupation….yet.
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again?
