Can Iraq stand by and help Syria?

The Iraqi government it is stated is a puppet corrupt government of the USA.

Naturally it has been argued before that it is not in Baghdad's interest to see "al-CIA-duh" ascend the reigns of power in Damascus.

If "al-CIA-duh" wins in Damascus, this will create greater terrorism in Iraq, from Syria since 'al-CIA-duh' will object to a Shia government in Bagdad, and under US occupation most of the Sunni fighters from North Africa came through Syria. 

Logically therefore the Iraqi government should fully cooperate with the Bashar government beyond symbolic speeches, and sympathy.

The Iraqi government must allow greater logistic supply from Iran and Russia through Iraq.

Iraqi government must show it is not a passive puppet of the USA, who installed them into power to destroy the old established system of 1300 years.

Iraqi military forces must enter Syria and fight side by side with them as they did in the 1967, and 1973 wars.

If Turkey helps the "al-CIA-duh" then Iraq must help peaceful, moderate legitimate Bashar against the forces of evil sectarianism.

Let us hope that the recent cooperation is the first of many to come.

The Iraqi army has reportedly shelled Free Syrian Army positions inside Syria near the border with Iraq. Unconfirmed reports suggest that Iraq was helping Syrian government forces regain control of a border checkpoint seized by the insurgency.

Syrian troops have recaptured the Al-Ya'robiya checkpoint on the border with Iraq on Friday night. According to witness reports on Twitter, Iraq's armed forces moved in to help with the operation and shelled the border post, which was held by the rebels.

An Al-Arabiya correspondent also confirmed that targets inside Syria had been shelled while Iraqi snipers took positions near the crossing. Massive reinforcements have also been deployed in Baghdad near the Syrian border, the correspondent said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights announced that a border checkpoint on Syria’s northeast border with Iraq had been overrun by rebel fighters from the Al-Nusra Front on Thursday but were recaptured by government troops after less than 24 hours.

Earlier on Friday, the conflict once again spilled into neighboring Iraq after a Scud missile fired from Syria landed near a village in Iraq's Nineveh province, causing no significant damage. Last time rockets fired from Syrian territory hit Iraq, in September 2012, they killed a 5-year-old girl.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki warned on Wednesday that a Syrian rebel victory could spark sectarian violence in his own country and the whole region.

“If the opposition is victorious, there will be a civil war in Lebanon, divisions in Jordan and a sectarian war in Iraq.”
