Two Cocks On Their Respective Dunghills


U.S. Says Arms Link Iranians to Iraqi Shiites - New York Times
In a news briefing held under strict security, the officials spread out on two small tables an E.F.P. and an array of mortar shells and rocket-propelled grenades with visible serial numbers that the officials said link the weapons directly to Iranian arms factories. The officials also asserted, without providing direct evidence, that Iranian leaders had authorized smuggling those weapons into Iraq for use against the Americans. The officials said such an assertion was an inference based on general intelligence assessments.

That inference, and the anonymity of the officials who made it, seemed likely to generate skepticism among those suspicious that the Bush administration is trying to find a scapegoat for its problems in Iraq, and perhaps even trying to lay the groundwork for war with Iran. --(emphasis mine)

You know, I wouldn't have any trouble believing that certain interested parties in Iran would provide aid and armaments to their "brothers" in Iraq. Many peoples in that area value allegiance to the tribe over nation, and Iran probably sees a chance to increase their influence. What gets me about this story is, where do we get off involving ourselves in Iraq in the first place, seeing as how none of the supposed reasons for going to war in Iraq were true?

Bush and Ahmadinejad are like two peacocks preening and strutting before an audience that can't stand either of them, trying desperately to attract birds of a feather with their ambitions. They prop each other up in vanity as they rattle their sabers more and more loudly.

Can the people and congress see through this charade in order to stop these mad men from starting what could be World War III?
