For those concerned about a possible war with Iran should turn up their worry-dials two notches. This morning’s news has a couple dark clouds.Leftcoaster correctly notes that if this were American, it's unlikely our fingerprints would be on the attack which suggests that the maybe the Iranians are ratcheting up the rhetoric. Leftcoaster is also reporting that there is some evidence of some new "command and control" functions are being sent to Iraq, perhaps for the Iraq/Iran border.
IED’s Inside Iran - If you have not been reading foreign press, you might have missed two explosions this past week in Iran. One of them killed 11 and injured 31 members of the Revolutionary Guard, and the other was near a school.
Although the devices were not IED’s like those found in Iraq, the explosions were in the area a group sponsored by the United States may be operating. The area in Iran is Sistan-Baluchestan near the borders of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Sy Hersh and a number of other reporters have said this is the area in which the MEK (or the mouthful name Mujahedin-e Khalq) have been operating.
This morning a Chinese newswire is reporting that the Iranians have evidence linking the attacks to the United States.
According to the report, “Relevant documents, photographs and film footage, which show that the explosives and arsenals used in the attack were American, would soon be made public, an ‘informed source’ was quoted as saying.”
I'm a very lucky person with every allergy known to man but still happy to be enjoying a wonderful life living in the best place in the world!
