+1 - Agreed - Huge smell of BS here -
A month or so ago,,,the “last” one of these stories that came from that area was a “cross-river” attack,,,
(they forgot to look at a map)...;0)
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.
