"...President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned Tuesday that a power vacuum is imminent in Iraq and said that Iran was ready to help fill the gap.
"The political power of the occupiers is collapsing rapidly," Ahmadinejad said at a press conference in Tehran, referring to U.S. troops in Iraq. "Soon, we will see a huge power vacuum in the region. Of course, we are prepared to fill the gap, with the help of neighbors and regional friends like Saudi Arabia, and with the help of the Iraqi nation."

Am I the only one that finds it completely asinine that the "no war in Iran" crowd and the "US out of Iraq" crowd are one in the same? Do these people possess even a modicum of common sense?
...Then again, maybe Ahmadinejad is really just a misunderstood guy --like Chavez, Castro, Che and Mumia...My bad.
