THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OUR REPUBLIC AND THEIRS:

ABC News Exclusive: The Secret War Against Iran (Brian Ross and Christopher Isham Report, April 03, 2007, ABC News)

A Pakistani tribal militant group responsible for a series of deadly guerrilla raids inside Iran has been secretly encouraged and advised by American officials since 2005, U.S. and Pakistani intelligence sources tell ABC News.

The group, called Jundullah, is made up of members of the Baluchi tribe and operates out of the Baluchistan province in Pakistan, just across the border from Iran.

It has taken responsibility for the deaths and kidnappings of more than a dozen Iranian soldiers and officials.

U.S. officials say the U.S. relationship with Jundullah is arranged so that the U.S. provides no funding to the group, which would require an official presidential order or "finding" as well as congressional oversight.

Tribal sources tell ABC News that money for Jundullah is funneled to its youthful leader, Abd el Malik Regi, through Iranian exiles who have connections with European and Gulf states.


They stumble into a few of our sailors but have to return them. We run an insurgency in their country and they can't say, boo.

"U.S. and Pakistani intelligence sources tell ABC News."

Nice to know that the CIA-led insurgency against the Bush administration continues...

ABC News probably thinks this is a hit piece that is going to weaken Bush. Americans on the other hand with give Bush credit for trying to take some action against Iran.

Tehran has been sponsoring terrorism for decades and is currently involved in killing American GIs in Iraq.

As they sow the wind, let them reap the whirlwind.

See how they like a few car bombs each day.

Fighting the spiritual jailhouse is too easy--they make it no fun at all. As long as they hate one another more than they hate Jews and Crusaders, all the Jews and Crusaders have to do is try not to look as though we're enjoying it too much

I certainly hope we've been doing this. They wanted war, they are getting war. A lesson on why "Death to America!" ought not be your nation's motto.
