Iraqi Security Pact

The Iraqi Security Pact has been received with mixed reactions on the “Arab Street”.   The Tuesday episode of Al-Jazeera’s Al-Itijah Al-Muakis debated the pact, pitting the Iraqi Minister of Culture versus a former Lebanese MP.  The Lebanese MP considered it  100% illegitimate, along with the whole US campaign in Iraq and argued that it was going to strengthen the Resistance, citing the Lebanese experience in the 1980s.   During that period Israel may have signed a similar security pact with the Lebanese government, but what happened, asked the MP?  The Resistance was emboldened and came back twice as hard.
