Iran Invades Iraq - but it is not and Invasion...

Thousands of Iranian troops have crossed into Iraq attacking Kurdish villages.  Apparently the Iraqi government does not want to call it an invasion.  (Probably because they do not want to have to do anything about it).  

You can see the story here.  Interestingly enough this is done when both Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and the prime minister of the Kurdish regional government, Dr. Barham Salih, left for Beijing just as the Iranian invasion began.  Supposedly this was a long planned trip to China to try to get Chinese investment into Iraq.

I find the whole timing of everything quite odd.  Apparently the Iranians could not even wait until the US had pulled out of Iraq completely.

Whatever you do - stay safe!
