ABSTRACT
The article focuses on comments by British Prime Minister Tony Blair concerning the role that Iran could play in helping to bring about stability in Iraq. One of Iraq's most popular leaders is Grand Ayatollah Sistani, who is Iranian. Also, many Iraqis lived in exile within Iran for a number of years during Sadaam Hussein's reign. The author calls for the United States and Britain to reexamine their policies towards Iran if they wish for Iran to cooperate in Iraq's security.
