This is nothing less than an act of war against the United States and there is little evidence that the Bush Administration is treating it with the seriousness that it deserves,
“Iranian intelligence operatives have been training Iraqi fighters inside Iran on how to use and assemble deadly roadside bombs known as EFPs, the U.S. military spokesman said today.
Commanders of a splinter group inside the Shiite Mahdi Army militia have told The Associated Press that there are as many as 4,000 members of their organization that were trained in Iran and that they have stockpiles of EFPs, a weapon that causes great uneasiness among U.S. forces here because they penetrate heavily armored vehicles.
U.S. military spokesman Maj. Gen. William Caldwell would not say how many militia fighters had been trained in Iran but said that questioning of fighters captured as recently as this month confirmed many had been in Iranian training camps.”
Have we publicly threatened the Iranians over this? Have we bombed any Iranian training camps? Have we, say, put a missile into Ahmadinejad’s house over this? Do you think Reagan would have allowed the Iranians to train and equip terrorists to kill American soldiers while we sat idly by and just watched it happen?
You can talk all you want about how the Iranian people love us, how they really want us to bomb them, or how they might try to retaliate against us with terrorists attacks. The Iranians are aiding in the killing of American soldiers and nothing is being done to stop them. Bush absolutely should not have allowed this to go on as long as it has and he shouldn’t allow it to continue.
