Although you should question anything that comes out of today's media, I don't think it's right to question it just because of who submitted the
article to ATSNN. Sure Muaddib might not be too friendly towards Iran, but he is a respectable member of ATS and I don't think his articles should
be questioned based on his opinions. Instead question it for other things, like the fact that the timing is quite coincidental.
If they are, it could expand this conflict greatly. The pinhead in chief is already clueless as to how to deal with this situition...an
expansion would paralyze him. The fact that it is an unnamed source calls the whole thing into question though.
I'll have to agree with you that Iranian troops fighting in the area would definatly expand problems, and that the president will be in a tough
situation. My guess is that if Iranian troops really are fighting the Israeli's will essentially force the US and possibly the UK to greatly expand
material support to Israel depending on how much Iran has commited. The worst case scenario is that we'll have to send forces to assist Israel,
which would essentially be throwing a stick of dynamite into an already well burning fire.
But there are a few questions I think we should ask ourselves here. First is whether or not these soldiers are actually there. Second is whether or
not they've been sent by the Iranian government or if they're simply volunteers. Third is whether or not the volunteers that I've heard reported
going to Lebanon to fight were actually just a cover for soldiers sent by the Iranian government. And finally, what's the possiblity of Israel
aquiring Iranian equipment over the black market and then planting it in order to gain more world support?
