If you were Iran, and thought America had a very weak CinC, what would you do?

I mean, besides the nuclear weapons, killing activists and stuff like that – maybe this?

Iraq’s government has ordered Iranian troops to withdraw from the oilfield which they have taken control of in southern Iraq, Reuters reported.

“Iraq demands the immediate withdrawal from well No. 4 and the Fakka oilfield, which belongs to Iraq. Iraq is looking for a peaceful and diplomatic settlement to this issue,” said government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh, according to Reuters.

Iranian troops crossed into Iraqi territory Thursday and seized an oil well that lies in a disputed area along the two countries’ southern border, Iraq’s deputy foreign minister said Friday.

Iran denied these claims, Reuters reported.

Nothing to add.
