Not suprising really. The military has suspected this for years. What is suprising is that America could not care less. How many more American Soldiers will have to be killed by Iran before this becomes a problem?

A few weeks ago the military engaged Iranians in Iraq. The Iranians and to a lesser degree the Syrians are behind all of the instability in the Middle-East.

Killing American soldiers is an act of war. It is about time that Bush gets off his you-know-what and defends the troops that he has deployed.

If I'm not mistaken, I think the number of American deaths attributed to the Iranians in reports is around 300. I would be willing to bet it is much more, but that number alone is approximately 10% of our current fatality figure. Where is the outrage? I'm not condoning a full-fledge invasion, but certainly, a few well placed GBU's would get their attention. I'd say one GBU per every American casualty caused by Iran. Attack from both the South (Gulf), West (Iraq), and the East (Afghanistan) and remind them we are well capable of dealing with them very forcefully, even though we are 'bogged down' in Iraq.

"...“explosively formed penetrator,”..."

Shaped charges. Nasty stuff. Good use IS roadside bombs.

IIRC, these were used in Paris a few years ago, and Lebanon a while ago. Gotta look it up now ............. FRegards
