ABSTRACT
The article reports that the International Crisis Group says Iran is not attempting to influence or destabilize Iraq. Many Iraqis do not trust Iran due to anger over the Iran-Iraq War and Iran's lack of support for the Shiite uprising after the Gulf War. Iran has an intelligence presence in Iraq and backs one of Iraq's largest political parties, the Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq, but these activities are designed simply to prevent Iraq from re-emerging as a threat to Iran.
