These Are The People The “Realists” Want As Our Partners In Negotiations

We’d had lots of smoking guns in Iraq that haven’t panned out too well, but this, if true, seems to be something even Nancy Pelosi can’t wish away:

WASHINGTON, Nov. 30, 2006 — U.S. officials say they have found smoking-gun evidence of Iranian support for terrorists in Iraq: brand-new weapons fresh from Iranian factories. According to a senior defense official, coalition forces have recently seized Iranian-made weapons and munitions that bear manufacturing dates in 2006.
This suggests, say the sources, that the material is going directly from Iranian factories to Shia militias, rather than taking a roundabout path through the black market. “There is no way this could be done without (Iranian) government approval,” says a senior official.
Iranian-made munitions found in Iraq include advanced IEDs designed to pierce armor and anti-tank weapons. U.S. intelligence believes the weapons have been supplied to Iraq’s growing Shia militias from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, which is also believed to be training Iraqi militia fighters in Iran

Direct, hard evidence that Iran is killing US Troops, and also gaining priceless experience designing weapons that destroy our frontline troops and their vehicles. And while they are doing this we are supposed to “engage” them in a dialogue, give them an official say in the restructuring of Iraq, and, as a bonus if they call right now, operators are on duty, give them time to develop nuclear weapons. A mind-boggling strategy.
And bone-chillingly frightening.

  1. It won’t bother Baker and Co. one single bit.

    Lay off Baker and company. What we’re doing now is not working now is it? Seem to remember the Russians supplying North Vietnam with weapons that killed our guys and we still talked to them.

    This seems to be the only recorded instance when a government endeavor founders and politicians don’t cry out, we need to do more!
    Now, instead of saying, the war is foundering, we need to put in ten times as many troops to make it work, we need to get hostile with Syria and Iran (who, by the way, were the main reasons we needed to go into Iraq anyway), now they are saying, oops, that was real hard. I’m tired, let’s go home and have milk and cookies and take a nap.
    It’s disgusting. I had about 50 of my Marines killed because at the time we thought our holding onto 100 miles of the Euphrates River with 2 rifle companies was needed until we could get the right forces in place. Now they’re saying, never mind. We suckered you guys and those men died for nothing. We’re not really willing to fight and win, we just wanted the enemy to quit.
    It’s BS. It’s high time we got very offensive with Iran. It’s time we convinced Israel to finish what it whimped out on in Lebanon, and continue on to Syria. Western Civilization is in the balance here. We are about to lose the first round in the war against radical Islam because we have a second Bush that is going wobbly. Baker and Company be damned to hell. We need to fight or we can never win.

    Baker & Co seem to support a gradual withdrawal, without a timetable. Oddly enough, that was on the table quite a while ago.
    Nor is the fact that Iran directly supports Iraqi terrorists. It’s just that the support is now fully in the open.
    It’s frightening, yes. But more frightening is the apparent cluelessness of our elected leadership.

    What Baker & company are going to propose (not that any of us really knows) is probably not to my or most of the readers liking but given that we squandered our chance to smack the real villian here more than once I don’t see the political nads on either party to do what should be done not to mention the public stance right now. I don’t think it would have taken much more than saying “boo” to Syria to get them in line and as far as the Iranians well in 79 or 80 we should have flattened them. I was on a boat in Dec of 79, we were going in to take Karg Island the oil terminal as a little bargaining chip for the hostages but noooo that pussy Carter backed down. Anyway what should be done and what will be done are trains going in opposite directions.
