Iraq Disintegrates
Afraid of the War Next Door, Iranians Praise the Revolutionary Guard

    This opens up new dangers for the Iranian government, I suppose. If ordinary Iranians are so unnerved by ISIS that they’re looking to the Guard for protection, what happens if we find out the Guard isn’t all it’s cracked up to be? What if the Guard turns out to be ineffective in Iraq? War is a terrible thing but it certainly brings inconvenient truths out into the open.

    Oh, absolutely! I too am an Iranian reformist who has suffered under the Guards, but now I have realized the error of my ways. Praise Allah that we have those glorious heroes to protect us! Those brave warriors should go to Iraq to protect us from those ISIS monsters. I have full faith that our intrepid Guards will pay any price, bear any burden, to defeat these ferocious animals. And if, sorry, I meant when they achieve glorious victory in Iraq, they should pursue the infidels into Syria! And then onwards to Al-Quds! And then they should go to Washington D.C and burn down the White House! Yeah!!! Long live the Revolutionary Guard! And remember the well-known fatwa, Oh Valiant Champions: La Garde meurt mais ne se rend pas! Inshallah.

    (Is there a proper blessing for the Guard?)

    This is wonderful for the innocent westerners which otherwise would have been murdered by the Jihadists, which now have most if not all of their resources focused on killing each other. The west should encourage this fight as much and as cheaply as possible (a timely word could save hundreds if not thousands of innocent westerners). “Divide and Conquer” is a time honored strategy used very successfully by the Byzantine empire and others.
