Today, Iran officially joined with democrats.
After a few days of beating around Bush and bragging that it was Iran that pushed the US to surrender, the regime joined democrats and condemned the US actions in Iraq earlier today.
Anti-war democrat, Rep. John Murtha, ranted back on March 5, 2006 that Iran actually wanted the US to stay in Iraq.

Let me tell you, the only people who want us in Iraq is Iran and al-Qaeda. I’ve talked to a top-level commander the other day, it was about two weeks ago, and he said China wants us there also.
Iran has issued a strong attack against US policy in Iraq, blaming the American presence there for sectarian violence.
Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki was speaking at a summit of world and regional powers in Egypt, called to discuss Iraq’s security.
The summit had been expected to see the first high-level talks between the US and Iran in almost three decades.
But those hopes were dashed as the only meeting that took place was between ambassadors, Iraqi officials said.
“It was the ambassadors and members of the [US and Iranian] delegations that met,” said Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshiyar Zebari, describing the meeting as “a positive sign”.
US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice confirmed that she did not meet Mr Mottaki at the summit, but said she would have taken the opportunity had it arisen.
Al Qaeda already celebrated the democratic plan of surrender in Iraq.
Maybe now the democrats will rest easy knowing they have real support for surrender.
