The American Forces Information Service provides the details of the attack in Karbala. Based on the sophisticated nature of the raid, as well as the response, or cryptic non-responses, from multiple military and intelligence sources, this raid appears to have been directed and executed by the Qods Force branch of the Iranian Republican Guard Corps. My sources agreed this is far to sophisticated an operation for the Mahdi Army or Badr Corps, while al-Qaeda in Iraq would have a difficult time mounting such an operation in the Shia south. â€œThe Karbala Government Center raid the other day was a little too professional for JAM [Jaish al-Mahdi, or the Mahdi Army],â€ according to a military source.
This raid required specific intelligence, in depth training for the agents to pass as American troops, resources to provide for weapons, vehicles, uniforms, identification, radios and other items needed to successfully carry out the mission.
Rick notes our forces were handcuffed, marched away and executed. This is a clear act of war by Iran. This was not defensive. And I really do not want to hear about how US policy forced Iran to attack us because there was nothing forcing them to do this. The Democrats better prepare the wells of the Senate and House – because it is time for them to make their stand. Are they going to avenge the unprovoked attack on our military? Our people were there to keep the peace and try and stop the bloodshed. But Iranians came across and pretended to be Americans.
We are at war with Iran. It is now only a question of how long Congress and America take to wake up to this fact. Think of what they could have done with a small nuclear device? Time is up for the Mad Mullahs and Ahmedinejad the “Final Saviour”.
