Combatting Terrorism Center at West Point ^ | 13 OCt 2008 | Joseph Felter and Brian Fishman

These two officers spent 2008 Summer in Iraq gathering information against Iran. A 90 page report has been released to inform those that are interested about the impact Iran is having in Iraq and against US interests. It contain historical context and strategic motivations.

With recent reports of the Iranian ship containing a dirty bomb that was captured by Somali pirates in the last couple of weeks - and elections ahead - it might be worth taking a look and passing it on to others.

" ....the MV Iran Deyanat is at anchor, watched closely by American, French and Russian naval units.

[Russian sources claim she] was an enormous floating dirty bomb, intended to detonate after exiting the Suez Canal
at the eastern end of the Mediterranean and in proximity to the coastal cities of Israel.
The entire cargo of radioactive sand, obtained by Iran from China
(the latter buys desperately needed oil from the former)
and sealed in containers which, when the charges on the ship are set off after the crew took to the boats,
will be blasted high into the air where prevailing winds will push
the highly dangerous and radioactive cloud ashore. ...."

Excellent work. Putin and Iran; they go hand in hand. See article on Putin as most dangerous man from Washington Examiner. Take away the oil weapon completely and see where they and China stand.
