With t he possibility that Iran directly or indirectly attacked U.S. forces recently, Iraq is warning both the U.S. and Iran not to use Iraq as a battleground in their escalating tensions.

http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/meast/01/31/iraq.main/index.html

If Iran is behind these attacks on U.S. Forces, they're taking up the escalation another notch. It's almost as if Tehran wants the U.S. to attack them.

Be careful what you wish for....

Well, I can certainly understand one view of this. If I lived in Iraq I would not want any other two nations using my home as a battlefield. Sort of how Canada felt about their airspace during the Lemay-USSR standoff during the cold war.  Smile

On the other hand, WHEN the US does pull out of Iraq, it seems highly probable that Iran may exploit the new Iraq's weakness and avenge some old greivances. What would Iraq think about the presence of the US military then?

It is easy when listening to Mahmoud OneManJihad to get the idea that he really thinks that is all the trigger it will require to get the world's billion-or so Muslims to rise up against the great Satan. No doubt there is a contingent in every Muslim population on earth - here in the US as well, who would buy into it. But the reality is that we are trading, and other kinds of partners with most Muslim nations and such a war, on the unlikely chance that it did start, would be terribly destructive for all sides.

I guess Ahmadinejad is sort of an Iranian Paris Hilton - who wants a nuke.

Well, threats from the Iraqi are paper-thin. Until they can even show they have the ability to bring security to Iraq, their *warnings* are likely to fall on deaf ears. The Iraqi people have almost zero confidence in Nouri Al Maliki and the Iraqi gov't.

The Iranians have been involved in the insurgency and attacking US troops since the beginning; the only thing that has changed is the administration's presentation of this fact to the US public and world media.

The Saudis are a major source of funding for Iraqi 'insurgents', yet regardless of how many terrorists they produce, their role in all this will go unmentioned by Washington....a fact noticed by everyone in the region as further evidence of America's long term (and always backfiring) habit of supporting repressive regimes for temporary tactical advantage.

Watch out for a Gulf of Tonkin type scenario with Iran

100% right. Most of the insurgents are Sunni, which would have nothing to do with Iran since Iran is Shiite, and everyone knows that Shiites and Sunnis hate each other. America more or less has been taking the side more of the Shiites in this case, so why would Iran even be interested in attacking the U.S. in that case? I highly doubt Iran wants to goad the U.S. into staying any longer and wants us out of there so that Iraq can become a Shiite Theocracy, and then Iran and Iraq can be united.

The Major media networks will not mention how the Saudis are funding the Sunni Insurgents, just like our president seems to forget that 15 of the 19 9-11 Hijackers were Saudi, were funded by the Saudi Royal family, yet our faithful 50 IQ leader "The Decider" continues to be best friends with the Saudis.

Exactly, these are old rumors.

I remember hearing about this three years ago, when they started to recover Iranian munitions from unexploded IED's.



OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

Perfect. The U.S. has been looking for a way to tactfully leave Iraq, now we have it. Iraqi PM Nuri al-Maliki's warning clearly indicates he has the ability to the defend his country without the presence of US forces. C'mon home boys.
