Waiting for the UN, US to condemn Iran for invading Iraq

For invading Iraq - Civilian toll of Iranian raids in northern Iraq enrages Kurds
Outrage is growing in Iraq's northern Kurdish territories over renewed Iranian air and artillery strikes against Kurdish rebels in the remote Qandil Mountains, officials and residents said.

Last week, Iran even sent ground forces about a mile into Iraqi territory, a brief incursion that Kurdish officials said elicited not a word of protest from the Iran-friendly administration of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki, who like Iran's rulers is a Shiite Muslim. Most Iraqi Kurds are Sunni Muslims.

"The breach of the Iranian troops on the borders of the Kurdistan region is a violation of the sovereignty of Iraq and international agreements,"

Sorry, the UN is too busy condemning Israel to take notice.

The US, even with Iraq having US troops in place and Iran contributing to the attacks against our troops - where's the harsh statements from Obama condemning such a violent attack against civilians of another sovereign country. Heck, where's the US air defenses and counterbattery fire?

Oh yes, Obama is too busy pontificating on the Israeli blockade of Gaza that is used to protect civilians from rocket fire and terrorists from Gaza.
Too bad for the Kurds that they haven't learned the secrets to gaining the world's sympathy:

1. Blow lots of stuff up and kill lots of civilians around the world.
2. Publicly demonstrate and proclaim that you hate Jews.
3. Have friends with lots of oil reserves.
4. Repeat 1, 2 and 3 while claiming you're a defenseless victim.
