Iran poking its nose in Iraq has been going on for some time without a reponse. It’s far from a British problem. More like a Bush one.

This reeks of Vietnam more and more. You don’t win a war by playing politics.

With the Iranians supplying shaped charged IEDs in Iraq, we might as well start bombing selected targets such as IED manufacturing sites in Iran.

These IEDs are killing US soldiers in Iraq, and now the Iranians are directly crossing in Afghanistan, which has NATO troops.

Iran is between a rock and hard place as I believe it has borders with Turkey, Iraq, and Afghanistan. All three of these countries have an interest in keeping the lunatics in charge of Iran at bay as well as concerns for nuclear weapons in Iran.

Caution advised here. I would suggest the 24 hour rule be utilized.

Maybe I’ll be busier than I thought when I arrive in Iraq in December. Maybe payback for the 1983 bombing in Beirut.

What happened to the Bush doctrine...

Bush is completely neutered, he might as well just head to the vet and make it official.

He believes the Democrats defeat rhetoric himself. He isn't going to do anything he isn't already doing out of fear of the reaction. Bush himself doesn't believe that America has any stomach for real war...so is it so hard to understand why the Islamists are completely convinced that total victory is there for the taking?

why he didn’t do something immediately after 911

He should have. He should have given Tehran 48 hours to evacuate then nuked it. ... and kept going down the list of countries on our State Departments list of terrorist sponsors.

Yep as Tennessee Ernie Ford Williams wrote it’s going to be a Long Hot Summer.

I wonder why the British have not retaliated against this aggression.

You know if Iran is doing it to the British and they do not respond then it will not be long before their doing it in American sectors.

Why isn’t the Maim Stream Press picking up on this.

Good thing we have Internet and Talk Radio so we can get the real news.

If we know where they are at, then I would say hit them with B-52s. Then send 12 Apache Helicopters to do a MOP up whats left. I think that would send the message.

"Huge smell of BS here"

Even if this is BS, there has been lots of evidence of Iranian involvement against us in Iraq, and we have done nothing to directly hit back(correct me if I'm wrong). Right now it seems that we are just playing referee in an ethnic conflict that is being escalated by Iran and Syria, while trying to finish a nation building project. We are hoping, and doing what we can to make them stay quiet long enough so we can declare victory and get the hell out of there. Unfortunately, our enemies in Iran and Syria aren't playing along, and we seem to be in some sort of denial about it all. The time has long passed for us to hit them back, and to hit hard. We should either play to win, or bring our guys home right now. I think the best solution would be to drop the pathetic rules of engagement, identify our enemies, and kill as many of them as we can.

It seems the "Bush Doctrine" was nothing more than a bunch of talk. Increasingly, the nations that support and harbor terrorists are finding this out.

The Sun article implies multiple sources. I have no idea if any of it is true. Ledeen's post on the Corner indicates he finds it credible, but he also implies that it could be the result of ritual chest-beating by one or more mullah factions in a domestic power dispute. Or something else, including sheer hubris.

One thing we cannot count on from the Bush administration is any degree of common sense or connection with reality - its actions on the immigration bill prove that.

You may be right but then again your trying to apply common sense and logic to illogical people who have a leader who is a real died in the wool nut job.

This Admininutjob is more wacko than say Howard Dean or a sober Teddy Kennedy.

He is on par with Yugo Chavez and sees himself as the savior of Islam.

I agree. Right now there is about a 0% chance of us invading Iraq or even making a military strike of any proportion there. If they invade Iraq, all bets are off. They may be mad in Iran, but they ain’t stupid.

They are a few years away from nukes. My guess is this administration has given up trying to stop them with anything other than to assist internal upheaval. I don’t see Hillary doing anything in 2009, do you?

“What makes you think Hillary will even get over 200 electoral votes ?”

Right now, unless something drastic happens, she is the winner of the election. Her negatives are almost meaningless because everyone knows about them now and are bored talking about them.

Do you have special insight to war plans with the Bush admin?

Or perhaps you forgot that every single pole out there says people want this war over with.

This country doesn’t have the will to face it’s enemies.. most want to run and hide and pull up the covers and hope it all goes away.

Knock Knock .. guess who... It’s reality. WAKE UP!

3000 innocent American citizens who died on 9/11 didnt “survive” the policies of her husband.

With all due respect. I dont think you understand what a disaster a Hillary presidency would be. And I cant believe you have already given up on the 08 election.

I haven’t given up on the election (just wait and you will see that), but I also am not so nieve to think she doesn’t have a lock on it right now. I have been around this great nation long enough to know we can survive a lot of things and have survived a lot worse that Hillary Clinton.

Bill Clinton didn’t cause 9/11. A mindset that this entire nation was in helped bin Laden to think he could get away with 9/11.

Thanks E and B for the pings. Since the Iranians already have violated Iraqi borders more than once (attacks on Australian, then British, forces), this isn’t surprising.
