Out of fear of importing terrorists, the US has stopped issuing visas to Iraqis who aided Coalition Forces. Wow, who saw that coming? The American Government refused to hold up its end of a bargain after it got what it wanted? That’s not the American Government that I grew up reading about in history class. Then again my public school didn’t have enough funds to give history to every student. So maybe this has happened before: Native Americans, Chile under Pinochet, Noriega in Panama, Iran Under Mohommad Mossadegh, and then again under the Shah, Afghanistan after the Russian Left, eventually the Libyan Rebels.
Bottom line there is little return on befriending America.
