Iranian troops cross into southern Iraq?
Let me start off – this is not a political post, this just bothers me.
“Iranian Revolutionary Guard forces have been spotted by British troops crossing the border into southern Iraq, The Sun tabloid reported on Tuesday….It is an extremely alarming development and raises the stakes considerably. In effect, it means we are in a full on war with Iran — but nobody has officially declared it.”
There has long been evidence that Iran is supplying insurgents in Iraq with weapons, and about a month ago they took British sailors prisoner, but this is the first I’ve read about Iran actually coming into Iraq. The mid-east is a mess and it looks like the United States is trying to engage Iran in some type of conflict, but will someone (with a level head on both sides) step in before the unthinkable happens?
I’m not saying let’s all hug, be friends and sit around the campfire. I know there is no such thing as world peace, but if the leaders of the world are not careful the whole world may be one giant campfire.
Update: Hot Air has a comment on this –
“I’m suspicious that a story as potentially big as this is being leaked to a tabloid instead of one of the prestige papers”
Great point but scary none the less.
Update #2: The Confederate Yankee questions the entire event and is looking for proof. So far, it sounds very… weak.
