Iran says insurgent bombers are trained in Pakistan (Nazila Fathi, February 19, 2007, International Herald Tribune)

The Iranian Foreign Ministry has charged that Sunni insurgents from Iran used Pakistan as a base to plan a bombing that killed 11 people and wounded more than 30 in the southeastern border city of Zahedan last week, and an official said that the ministry had demanded an explanation from the Pakistani ambassador.

Which is why it is India that will broker the American/Iranian love match.

Or it might just possibly be conceivable that Iran is lying...

Do the sophisticted, particularly sadistic IED's come from Pakistan as well? The 'troop surge' threat seems to be spooking some of these scumballs.

They aren't lying about who the enemy is.

So we should love those responsible for the deaths of American GIs?

What is with you and this bizarro Iranian fetish?

It's overly Lefty to hate George Bush just because he's responsible for a few dead GIs.

People forget that Iran and the Taliban were feuding and fighting prior to 9/11, and had the terror attacks not occurred when they did, Iran probably would have invaded Afghanistan in late 2001. In fact, Iran gave the US useful information about Al Qaeda for several months after the 9/11 attacks, although it must be noted that other parts of the Iranian "government" were probably hiding AQ terrorists at the same time.

Of course, at the present time, more parts of the Iranian "government" are in cahoots with AQ (and the Sunni Arabs) than before. But those Sunni ba*%&@%$ hicks from Pakistan, we'll show them what jihad is all about!
