|They closed the borders.|
Maybe America has something to learn from Iraq...
Iraq is closing its borders with Iran and Syria as part of a security crackdown to attempt to rein in violence.
The new measures were announced by the Iraqi official in charge of the security plan, Lieutenant-General Abboud Qanbar.
"We have decided to close two Syrian and four Iranian border posts for 72 hours," he said.
"The Iranian border post of al-Sheeb will reopen partially after one week and fully after 60 days, other border posts will remain closed until further notice."
A government official said an announcement would be made when the frontiers had been closed.
Iraqis making and executing policies. That's a good sign. There is a lot of border to watch there though. Hopefully they can keep an eye on enough of it to keep Iranian and Syrian influences out of Iraq.
