Hezbollah Behind January Karbala Attack

Mon Jul 02, 2007 9:39 am

Ah, yes, more proof that Iran has it's filthy paws all over the insurgency in Iraq, via Hezbollah.


Now, isn't this considered an act of war, by both Iran and Hezbollah? Doesn't this make them fair game?

I think it does.

You've got two foreign powers competing for the government they want in Iraq. One has killed 10s of thousands of Iraqis in the last few years; the other has killed 100s of thousands of Iraqis in the 80s. Just on the basis of 'act of war' I'm not sure what Iran has done in Iraq that the US hasn't?

The US is allegedly in place at the 'invitation' of the Iraqi government; even though the Iraqi people overwhemlingly want the US out of Iraq and have wanted the Americans out for years....where does the will of the Iraqi people sit in the "strategy" of the democracy-spreading Americans?

We both know Bush has almost no political support left and mounting an action against Iran would be impossible unless they did something spectacularly stupid against America directly.

In lieu of regime change in Iran, thoughtful Americans are now thinking about how to live in a world where Iran is the dominate power in the ME - controlling both Iran, Iraq and parts of the Palestinian "political parties"...thanks to the favor GWB handed the Iranians on a silver platter by eliminating their biggest enemy.
