Stable Iraq an essential threat to Iran – Perle

Stable Iraq an essential threat to Iran – PerleNCRI – Richard Perle, Former Assistant Secretary of Defense and a political analyst at the American Enterprise Institute said in a radio interview in Washington that the stable Iraq is an essential threat to the Iranian mullahs, because they cannot remain in power if a democratic and progressive government was to emerge in their neighborhood.

Mr. Perle added: "I believe that Iran would do every thing it can to make life hard for the Iraqis and the American forces there. I don’t think that they can do any more damage."

The Former Assistant Secretary of Defense added: "I don’t believe we can trust the Iranians to either encourage or create a stable environment in Iraq, because a stable Iraq would pose an essential threat to them. Iran would definitely loose many things if a stable environment was established in Iraq."
