UK Accuses Iran Over Killings Of Our Soldiers

#2
British military sources insisted last night there was no hard evidence that the explosives technology came from Iran. Defence sources suggested that blaming the IRGC for supplying the explosives technology was going too far. Other military officials said there was "so much expertise in Iraq" the bombs could have been made by former members of Saddam Hussein's security forces.
I suppose the situation is clear enough.

In wide context yes, but as to direct involvement of Iran in supplying of the bombs then I prefer to believe British military.

Hmmm...interesting speculation from that notoriously hard Left anti semitic news agency, the BBC:
Intelligence shared

One cannot of course judge the accuracy of the accusation.
And there are questions to be asked about how Britain might have made the connection with Hezbollah.

Fatal attacks have risen noticeably in the past few months
Britain has no experience of Lebanon. So how would it know that bombs used in southern Iraq could be connected to bombs used by Hezbollah?

The answer has to involve the Israelis, with perhaps the Americans acting as intermediaries.

Who other than Israelis and Americans would know how Hezbollah makes a bomb? The Lebanese are unlikely to tell.

This in turn opens up all kinds of interesting issues. For one thing, the intelligence relationship between Britain and Israel, with or without the US, must be quite close these days.

This has not always been the case. But mutual dangers often bring mutual support.

As for Iran, no doubt the rhetoric will be raised

It appears that American puppet disagrees with mr.Blair

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/mai...ml&sSheet=/portal/2005/10/06/ixportaltop.html

Ibrahim Jaafari, the Iraqi prime minister, has rejected accusations that Iran has been interfering in Iraq's internal affairs.

His comments came after Tony Blair said evidence pointed to Iranian involvement in a series of roadside bombings.

Mr Jaafari told Iranian state television: "Such accusations are baseless and we do not agree with them at all.

Kudos to Mr Blair for saying what needs to be said with regard to Iran. Had they not supported radical elements inside Iraq many good men would still be alive today.

But black marks to Bush for driving the Iranians away again a few years ago when we'd just about got diplomatic "relations" back to "unpopular great-aunt" from "poisonous spinster second-cousin".

Hmm. Has anyone been reading Scott Ritter's recent articles about the coming war with Iran? Originally thought he was barking and bearing a grudge, but this is all starting to look eerily familiar.

Am I being cynical in thinknig this is a warm-up exercise to get people a bit more switched on if things go pear-shaped with Iran? Personally, look at Iran's demographics, their educated youth sector (one in three of the population are under 25) is already clashing with the Revolutionary Gruards and those freaky neighbourhood thought police militias. Give it a few more years and Iran will implode on its own.

Well, it will only implode if we let them get on with it. The current flow of nonsense from the US administration and the presence of US troops in Iraq are some of the major barriers to reform in Iran at the moment. At the moment when the Mullahs bang on about the Great Satan and other such nonsense they are given credibility by the rhetoric coming out of the White House and the perceived carnage in Iraq. If we truly want to help the reformers then we'd drop the threats and start helping the Iranians. Target the info ops properly (although we've failed in this arena so far) and show them that we're nice guys who want to sell them crappy pop music, Levis, Coke, iPods etc etc. Then the Mullahs start to look like sad old nutters stuck in the past.

And said rhetoric/carnage also serve to align bogging US/UK toops down in Iraq with the survival of the Iranian regime, thus making it in their national interest to blow us up. Perhaps it's a more sophisticated version of the "friendly fire" we get from the Yanks ?

Y-a-a-a-y! Haw,haw....waves Order paper indecorously from a recumbent position.....you SAID it O-O-T-S...the best way to bring young Persians onboard is by providing the goods they want, at prices they can afford in the shape they want.

Kylie Minogue and Kirsten Dunst make better ambassadors than some dour Uncle Sam lookalike Neocon threatening fire and brimstone.....
