Iraqis and Iranians, sitting in a tree...

Hard to believe, but it looks like the Iraqi military will, at least in part, be trained by Iran. Demagogue reports here. Yes, one wonders what Bush and Rumsfeld have to say about this. But what about Iraq's Sunnis? There may be a good reason for this, and I'm keeping an open mind, but, given Iran's recent election and the continuing tensions between Shiites and Sunnis in Iraq, it just doesn't seem to make any sense. Besides, isn't this yet another case of Bush-style flip-flopping when things go bad?
