The question still remains whether Iraq will become an Iranian satellite state.
Pulling out of Iraq may have been the lesser evil for the US, but questions now loom regarding the ability of the Iraqi state to function, and the withdrawal does not resonate well among some of America’s allies in the region. In their eyes, the withdrawal of US forces from Iraq at this time is tantamount to unfinished business, eroding their confidence in the US.
According to Iran's Qud's commander, Iraq is already under Iranian control.
In the meantime, the EU agrees Iran oil embargo, which means, it's just a matter of time before some one passes gas and the missiles start flying.
