Iraq: Impossible dreams of Arabs

IraqiPundit wonders what NYT is talking about here. Arab influence in Iraq? What influence are these supposed analysts operating under? Arab countries traditionally sided with Saddam against the Iraqi people.

But Ghaddafi was recently quoted as saying that he still believe Saddam is Iraq's legitimate leader, IraqiPundit said.
