Friedman on Iraq & Syria
David Friedman points out the obvious in regards the situation in Iraq:
"Has anyone commented on the fact that the recent events in Iraq make the U.S. and Iran de facto allies, both opposing a Sunni uprising? Or that the the U.S. and the militants we oppose in Iraq are de facto allies against Assad's regime in Syria, a semi sort of maybe Shia regime supported by Iran?"
In other words, Syrian Alquada/AlNusra good, Iraqi Alqueda/AlNusra bad.
