IRAN - Again

DEBKAfile - Feb 12th. "The US military in Iraq Sunday accused high-level Iranian officials of approving the smuggling of extra-powerful roadside bombs into Iraq. Iranian-made “explosively formed penetrators”- EFPs have killed 170 American troops, injured 620, since June 2004 when they were first smuggled to Iraqi Shiite militias."
Bill Roggio's Fourth Rail - Feb 11th. "Tehran has begun supplying Iraqi insurgents and Lebanese Hizballah forces with home-made QW-1 shoulder-carried missiles copied from Chinese anti-air missiles to maximize their threat to US and Israeli helicopters in two battle arenas – Iraq and Lebanon, respectively. Russian-made SA-7 anti-air missiles are also being delivered to these terrorist forces by Iran."
and "Iran is involved in supplying explosively formed projectiles or EFPs and other material, such as explosive charges, booby traps, mortar shells of different calibers and remote controls to detonate IEDs to "multiple" insurgent groups. More than 120 US and coalition troops have been killed by these things, and 620 wounded."
BBC - Feb 13th. In reply to a question about Iran supplying weaponry to Iranian insurgents a "spokesman for UK Prime Minister Tony Blair said: "We keep finding the weaponry which we don't believe to be sourced from anywhere else."

The accusations by the American government are that this is being done with the blessing of Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamanei and that his Al-Qods brigade are supplying support and training.

These increasing accusations of Iran's involvement in Iraq, the pressure on Iran over it's nuclear programme, plus the military build up in the Persian gulf is pointing at America's impatience with the Islamo-fascist theocracy in Iran. Meanwhile, Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadimwit says he doesn't fear an attack by America.
