Iraq must find it refreshing to have such helpful neighbors.
Iran offered to train Iraqi police and border guards two days before it was scheduled to host a meeting of security chiefs from Iraq’s neighboring states, the official news agency reported Sunday.
It was unclear how Iraq would respond to the Iranian offer. The countries fought a war from 1980-88 that killed or wounded nearly one million people on both sides.
“The Islamic Republic is ready to train Iraqi police and border guards and even equip them as well as help with the country’s reconstruction,” said Ali Asghar Ahmadi, Iran’s deputy Interior Minister for Security Affairs, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency.
Ummm … I don’t think it’s a good idea to have a country helping train Iraq’s security when that country is blatantly working to undermine Iraqi security.
