Posted on 06/02/2007 6:05:21 PM PDT by jdm
Iran has increased arms shipments to both Iraq's Shiite extremists and Afghanistan's Taliban in recent weeks in an apparent attempt to pressure American and other Western troops operating in its two strategic neighbors, according to senior U.S. and European officials.
In Iraq, Iranian 240mm rockets, which have a range of up to 30 miles and could significantly change the battlefield, have been used recently by Shiite extremists against U.S. and British targets in Basra and Baghdad, the officials said. Three of the rockets have targeted U.S. facilities in Baghdad's Green Zone, and one came very close to hitting the U.S. Embassy in the Iraqi capital, according to the U.S. officials.
The 240mm rocket is the biggest and longest-range weapon in the hands of Shiite extremist groups, U.S. officials say. Remnants of the rockets bear the markings of Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps and are dated 2007, those sources said. The Tehran government has supplied the same weapon, known as the Fajr-3, to Hezbollah, the Shiite Muslim Lebanese militia.

And, yet we won’t do a thing about it.
lol we’re on the same wavelength again...
Bush doesn’t do borders.
Yeah, I guess those talks we had with the Iranians really scared ‘em, huh? Those State Dept folks are so intimidating. Them and the EU delegations.
IRAN publically stated recently that:
“It’s now time for the world to start imagining a World without an
America in it”
CLINTON publically stated after the 9/11 Attacks that:
“There may not even be an America around in 300 years”
...the Battle for the 21st Century has been defined and enjoined by our Enemies...
...within & without.
Anonymous sources. In the meantime everyone willing to be named says that there is no proof that the Iranian government is responsible.
And the article posted right before this one is: “Military action in Iran not in anyones interest, says Gates.”
Thanks, Gates, for telling Iran that they can do whatever they damned well want and we’ll just sit here and let them do it.
Why shouldn’t they?
By the way, the Brits are running away, so it won’t make much of a nevermind to them in a few weeks anyway.
Please, President Bush: Drop the Bomb!
I would if I were them.
Event # 1: The amnesty for illegal aliens bill to be enacted into law. Event # 2: Hillary Clinton to be elected President. At this point in time, both are probable. I know that many on this forum preach that rudy will wipe up the floor with hillary.If Rudy had believed that he would be one of the Senators from New York today instead of Hillary. But none the less, if either event takes place , if you want to see what life in the U.S. will be in a few years look at Mexico and the South American countries. The aliens will elect Deomcrats and the Democrats will raise taxes so high that the economy will dry up.
Where is the President? This is an act of War.
Be assured it will take much longer. Not all of us will let it just happen. If it takes a civil war or a military coup this country will not go silently into the night and everyone of else should be committed to stand up and be counted when the time comes to fight for the very existence of this nation.
Your HILLARY analysis is why, exactly, I’ve been doing all I can to prevent this longtime Enemy Within from ever re-entering our Oval Office. Especially in this new time of war with our own Freedom now directly at stake right here at home.
Sacrificing along the way in doing so:
(It’s worth EVERYTHING)
NEVER FORGET that HILLARY & BILL CLINTON’s supporting Communist North Vietnam’s push to take over a then Free South Vietnam during the Vietnam War ended up bringing us:

What Price, the Loss of one’s Freedom..?
Just ask the once Free South Vietnamese.
