U.S. ambassador says Iran will be winner if U.S. abandons Iraq

-

Xinhua: U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker said on Monday that Iran would be a winner if the United States abandons Iraq or drastically curtail U.S. efforts on Iraq. WASHINGTON, Sept. 10 (Xinhua) — U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker said on Monday that Iran would be a winner if the United States abandons Iraq or drastically curtail U.S. efforts on Iraq.

“I am certain that abandoning or drastically curtailing our efforts will bring failure, and the consequences of such a failure must be clearly understood by us all,” Crocker said while testifying to the Congress.

Iran would be a winner if Iraq falls into chaos or civil war, which will mean massive human suffering well beyond what has already occurred within Iraq’s borders, Crocker said.

“In such an environment, the gains made against Al Qaida and other extremist groups could easily evaporate, and they could establish strongholds to be used as safe havens for regional and international operations,” Crocker said.

The United States has accused Iran of supporting insurgents inside Iraq to fight against the U.S.-led multinational troops. Iran has denied the charges.
