President George W Bush has ordered US forces to launch a military offensive against Iranian officials and Revolutionary Guards officers behind a support and funding network for anti-American fighters in Iraq.
US troops have been authorised to use force to tackle Teheran's agents, who are believed to support both Shia and Sunni fighters
Mr Bush signed the clandestine directive after he was given new intelligence on the scale of Iranian operations to foment violence in Iraq.
US troops were operating under the new instructions when they raided an Iranian "liaison office" in northern Iraq last week, detaining five men, in the latest showdown with Teheran's agents.
The swoop, which was condemned by Iran and its political allies in Iraq, came less than two weeks after a senior Revolutionary Guards commander was seized in another raid near Baghdad with documents linked to the bloodshed. It has fuelled fears of direct armed clashes between US forces and Iranian operatives.
In a further development, US intelligence has learnt that the Shia-led Islamic regime is backing Sunni insurgents in Iraq, as well as the murderous militia operated by its fellow Shia clerics.
In other words, iran fomenting civil war.
The U.S. should bomb and totally destroy Iran's nuclear sites, oil pipelines, and oil wells. This would eliminate the nuclear threat from Iran, bankrupt the country, force regime change, eliminate Iran's ability to support terrorists and insurgents, and send a clear message to other rogue regime's such as Syria and North Korea. Right now, our troops are being killed with the help of Iran and Syria.
At the same time, the Democrats are trying to undermine President Bush and our troops, because they think if the United States loses in Iraq that will help them win the White House in 2008.
Yep and in additional words, Mahdi Army Shiites (and Fatboy) alligned with Sunni's and Persians, killing innocent Shiites in Iraqi shopping at markets.
maybe we should threaten to take out all of Iran's oil facilities thereby cutting off their main revenue as well as their nuclear sites...unless they completely stop all nuke and terrorism activities.
'Had to read that twice, but LOL!
This is the path to finishing this thing.
Lets hope they follow the road now.
You can tell a lot about a man by how he treats women.
And we all know how Muslims treat their women.
Thanks, I did forget a few others from the retreat-now crowd!
"Who else in DC is for the War on Terror besides Bush?"
"...It's time we recognized the nature of the conflict. It's total war and we are all involved. Nobody on our side is exempted because of age, gender, or handicap. The Islamofacists have stolen childhood from the world." [FReeper Retief]
"...That the totalitarian force pitted against freedom wears a religious makes this civil war among mankind all the more difficult to engage. Loving freedom as we do, it seems reprehensible to deliberate against a religion. But this is no ordinary religion as it demands absolute obedience of all to their religion at the cost of freedom itself." [FReeper Backtothestreets]
No, kick their asses....then smite them
I don't think so. Congress is talking about pulling the plug for funding Iraq.
As angry Americans laid seige to the Capitol building.....
I feel the same as you. You don't go to war to shake hands. You go to war to KILL THE ENEMY on sight!! I hope and pray that the army has been given new instructions to actually kill the enemy. Political corruptness does not win wars. CO
Shia cleric---Fat boy?
Oh how I would love to see "angry Americans lay seige on the Capitol and all the stupid liberal riff raff in it". Those are the asses that really need to be kicked.
This is a really important turn of events with a lot of implications.
If the mullah's were to lose the arab shiite territory of Khuzestan with its oil pipelines and refineries, Iran would be living on pastichio nuts and flying carpets...
