Clearly the Iranian flow of weapons into Iraq and to the Mahdi Army continues apace, and may even be increasing as brand new systems are being discovered in the hands of insurgents:
he US military says it has found Iranian-made mortars, rockets and explosives in Iraq bearing recent date stamps, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.
“You can see the manufacturing dates right on the armaments themselves,” a senior commander in Baghdad was quoted as saying. “These are very clearly weapons that were made in the last month or so.”
Iran denies supplying ammunition to Iraqi militants, or training them.
Earlier this week, a US general in Iraq said that the increasingly sophisticated attacks carried out by Shiite extremists were evidence that they were getting extra aid from Iranian groups in the country.
More here. Iranian denials are becoming laughable (unless you are from the SurrenderMedia). To move new weapons hot off the assembly line and into the battle just recently started in Iraq – given the time it takes to secretly transport these weapons from Iran and into the hands of the Mahdi Army – means these weapons are being diverted with full knowledge from the Iranian state. Why? Because Iran cannot have weapons like these simply disappearing from the production lines and falling into the hands of the Iranian resistance forces who oppose the Mad Mullahs of Tehran.
Not sure why people cannot face the evidence right in front of them – but who cares in the end? As I suspected ,Iran’s recent support for the crack down by Maliki on Sadr’s forces was probably a public relations move to distance itself from the evidence of Iranian involvement which would arise from taking out Mahdi weapons caches. Just because the gullible SurrenderMedia continues to deny the mounting evidence doesn’t mean everyone else is so easily snowed. Iran tried to fight a proxy war and has been caught red handed.
The Persian tried to take over the Shiite Arab lands of Southern Iraq. And that makes Sadr Iraq’s version of Benedict Arnold – which is why the Arab Shiite street is greeting his demise with celebration and relief.
