Iraq allegedly has agreed to allow 50,000 Iranian Basij militia troops into the country to help suppress riots against the government and seize Arab and other foreign embassies, including that of the United States. The two leaders allegedly agreed to allow the Basij forces to attack and occupy the foreign embassies considered hostile to Iran in Baghdad, and to detain their staffs.

How reliable is this news source?
Arutz Sheva or Channel 7 is a major Israel’s “right-wing” media network. Like Fox or something.
The real source is “the Voice of Iraq website” and “Nashwan News”.
I have no idea how credible they are.
Since when is Fox “right-wing” ?
Its own reporting is very reliable, but this report is reprinted and cited as from other sources, not Arutz.
I couldn’t find this story on either nashwan or voice of iraq
Well, it was called this way at the time. Arutz Sheva is more conservative for sure, but it is a foreign media outlet so you have to adjust standards:)
Anything is possible of course, but it reads like pure Iranian propaganda that is put out by the Iran’s cyber army.
It’s something Baghdad Bob would give high marks to.
The Iranian cyber army creative staff are pouring on the propaganda, lately. (Video included of course.)
“Official Iran Broadcasting channel claims Syrian air raids on Israel”
(February 9, 2013)
And why would they lie?
So far this farce is only known to be on the IRIB Italian radio website, but it may be elsewhere as well.”
Well, let’s have fun and see what we can find on the internet.
Yep, this video is popular.
How about another look at a “secret” Iranian missile program.
Here’s the video:
“Iran test Ali Z28 missile”
We should have just bombed the whole damned dungheap into cinders and left them to rot.
Iran’s propaganda department may have gone bananas. Could it be they mixed up the photos of their “space” monkeys? How could this happen?!
“Iran’s space monkey business: A plausible explanation?”
SNIPPET: “Iran admits that one of two official photos of Iran’s first monkey in space depicted the wrong monkey. It showed an archive photo of one of the alternate monkeys. But one expert says Iran’s still lying about one of the monkeys.”

prolly woulda been better off with the Duck Dynasty in charge of foreign policy
50,000 is a popular number. I guess that’s the standard number for today’s (and previous years) Basij army.

The YouTube video in post no. 18 was posted in 2011.
Bush was backing the Saudi initiative, but the Saudis are very unpopular in Iraq. obama came in and did a 180 and backs Iran to the hilt.
IF there is an attack on the American Embassy in Iraq, it will be because obama allowed it...just as he allowed the attacks on the Cairo Embassy and Benghazi...and just as he TRIED to incite in Pakistan.
