It is "bombs" infinite. I just saw it. It said according to US military intelligence sources, more than 170 soldiers have been killed by smuggled bombs from the highest command in Tehran.
Well let the Propoganda BS flow towards the inevitable, but most of us saw this coming before the Iraq war even started.

According to a spokesman from American Military, the highest levels from within Iran have ordered sophisticated devices to be sent to Iraq. Because of this 170 troops have died.

This is just more Skynews Propoganda on Iran which will build over the next few months.

Here's something on the BBC about it. Definitely going to be used as an excuse for war.


The US military has accused the "highest levels" of Iran's government of supplying increasingly sophisticated roadside bombs to Iraq's insurgents.

Senior defense officials told reporters in Baghdad that the bombs were being used to deadly effect, killing more than 170 US troops since June 2004.

The weapons known as "explosively formed projectiles" (EFPs) are capable of destroying an Abrams tank.


But its' 170 troops since 2004, not all in one fell swoop.

Here is an article pertaining to the Iran bomb situation

More than 170 Americans Killed by Such Bombs


The officer, briefing reporters in Baghdad on condition that he not be further identified, said that between June 2004 and last week, more than 170 Americans had been killed by the bombs, which the military calls ``explosively formed projectiles.''



I think the OP needs to edit the title of this thread..

I think you jumped a little too quickly there infinite, numerous bombs on numerous occasions, totalling 170 dead US personnel.

We all know what this is.

Amazing how two countries who not too long ago were at war can join together when they have a far greater common foe.

This appears to imply they are about to go in.



The allegations were made in a briefing which had been set for last week. But U.S. defense officials said it was postponed so that the Pentagon could review the information to make sure it was accurate. That appeared aimed at avoiding the embarrassment suffered when evidence of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction presented by Secretary Colin Powell at the United Nations in 2003 proved to be wrong.

Well the war drums like another member already said are in full gear . . .

Lets hear what the war path happy Bush has to say in his radio address today Sunday . . . he always have something interesting to add to the targeting of Iran next.

I have to agree with Vichillo.

This smells like wartime propaganda. All the necesary datails for this news item are present. Iran has the same kind of weapons so they must be from Iran. So Iran is responsible for 170 death and more then 600 injured. That leavs us only one solution. Attacking Iran.

It's so obvious but still, sooner or later it will happen

you know, i have absolutely no doubt that iran is very involved with the anti-US effort in iraq. of course when you get right down to it, this is not an excuse for war with iran. lets review for a minute:

korea: russian pilots fly migs against US f86s...no US response.

vietnam: again, russian personnel in both aircraft and SAM sights...no US response.

afganistan: CIA operatives providing stingers to afghans and in some instances actually participating in the combat...no russian response.

there is precedence here folks. i dont like it any more than any other american, but we've known this was going on for several years now, and it's no reason for war with iran. what we should be doing is running special ops against iranian assets in the war zone, as they are fair game once they cross the border, as well as beefing up security along the iranian border. but attacking iran would only make a bad situations worse IMHO.

I agree, is many ways to stop the infiltration of weapon if the US present administration really wanted to stop them and do something about it . . .

But . . . we already know that our troops lives and the ones that have been lost are for a purpose, and that is to find the links to attack Iran.

My husband a retired Marine always said "We are all expendable" he has a reason for that . . . one soldier die . . . another will replace it.

That much the lives of our soldiers are value in war time by the profiteers and pushers of wars. . .

Only the Families and the people of this nation will remember them as heroes . . .

The rumours and stories about Iran supplying arms to Iraqis has been around for sometime.

What is astounding is how blatant this propaganda is, they have actually managed to equate the exact number of US deaths, 170, specifically to Iranian bombs, and the public will buy it.

STOP THE WORLD I WANNA GET OFF.....!!!!
