KNOWING YOUR ALLIES:
US, Iran, Longtime Enemies, Now Potential Partners (DEB RIECHMANN and BRADLEY KLAPPER, 6/21/14, Associated Press)
For years, Iran has been an archenemy of the United States. Now, with alliances blurred in the Mideast, the two countries are talking about how to stop an offensive in Iraq by al-Qaida-inspired insurgents.How is it that adversaries that haven't trusted each other for 35 years could cooperate on Iraq today?
Hopw could the Middle East's dem ocracies not end up being allied? When you include Israel, South Lebanon, Turkey and India the Sunni Arabs are surrounded.
