Iran at war with US

BREITBART.COM - "'Tehran has been responsible for at least some of the increasing lethality of anti-coalition attacks by providing Shia militia with the capability to build improvised explosive devices in Iraq,' Bush said in a speech.

He cited recent congressional testimony from John Negroponte, the US director of national intelligence.

Bush also charged that 'some of the most powerful IEDs we are seeing in Iraq today include components that came from Iran.'

'Coalition forces have seized IEDs and components that were clearly produced in Iran. Such actions, along with Iran's support for terrorism and its pursuit of nuclear weapons, are increasingly isolating Iran,' he said.
The US military has said in the past that advanced roadside bombs with shaped armor-penetrating explosives and sophisticated triggering devices have been turning up in Iraq.

US military intelligence sources said the weapons have been traced to Iran's Revolutionary Guard or Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed militia in Lebanon.

Last week, US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld directly accused the Islamic government in Tehran for the first time of sending Iranian Revolutionary Guard into Iraq to make trouble."

Yes, I heard the news on the radio this morning.

You don't expect civil war in Iraq, then?

Between who? The Arab factions in Iraq? I doubt it. The reports are pretty overblown for the amount of danger. Both sides love their newly given freedoms, and don't want to risk losing it in a battle with each other, either by loosing, or by having someone like Iran or syria take over.
