Same news as last yr: Iranian made bombs in Iraq
ABCNews reports that "I think the evidence is strong that the Iranian govt is making these IEDs, and the Iranian govt is sending them across the border and they are killing US troops once they get there. I think it's very hard to escape the conclusion that, in all probability, the Iranian govt is knowingly killing US troops," says Richard Clarke. Well, given that the hardcore Shiia fundamentalists are holding the reins of power in Iraq and that the hardcore Shiia fundamentalists hold the reins of power in Iran, is this so shocking? And given that MSNBC reported this identical news last yr in Aug '05, should we surprised? Well, maybe surprised by the timing of this "breaking" ABC news, but... oh that's right... Bush has to rev up the war wagons. Of course, it is a war that we cannot pay for since we robbed the piggy bank to pay for the clusterfuck known as Iraq, we do not have the troops to fight the war, and we already have an unfinished civil war in Iraq to deal with, but since when are any of these sensible reasons reason enough to prevent Bush from possibly starting a 2nd civil war in an oil rich Mid Eastern nation?
