Iran is closely tied to America's Shiite allies in Iraq, and has nothing to do with the Sunni insurgents who are responsible for almost all the killings of American troops.
Like John McCain you seem to be ignorant of the most basic facts in Iraq and Iran.
The Iranians want the Shiite majority to succeed in Iraq!

The individual who has started this thread realy needs to reflect on his life. Also he needs to re-examine the way he thinks.
You're going to invade a country and destroy it's infrastructure because of your suspicion??
"We don't have that kind of evidence... If there is hard evidence we will defend the country."
"I have not myself seen any evidence -- and I don't think any evidence exists -- of government-supported or instigated" armed support on Iran's part in Iraq, British Defense Secretary Des Browne said in an interview in Baghdad in late August.
The officials offered no evidence to substantiate allegations that the "highest levels" of the Iranian government had sanctioned support for attacks against U.S. troops. Also, the military briefers were not joined by U.S. diplomats or representatives of the CIA or the office of the Director of National Intelligence.
Although the administration has made many assertions about Iran's nuclear program, its role in Iraq and its ties to groups on the State Department's terrorism list, the U.S. government has never publicly offered evidence proving the allegations.

When you invade a country u need to realize it may have collateral effects and that is one of them and if our government wasnt smart enough to realize this then I dont know what to say. Heres an idea get our of Iraq then you dont need to worry about it ...now theres a good idea.
Isreals military is strong and can kicks anyones butt over there hell probably 2 and 3 at one time they dont need our help. If they get INVADED then maybe we can help them out some buy only if they need it. No one has touched them Im not sending people kids to die for Isreal or any country for that matter unless they really really need it but not a minute before that.
The Taliban were based in the Helmand, Kandahar and Uruzgan regions, and were overwhelmingly ethnic Pashtuns and predominantly Durrani Pashtuns. They received training and arms from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia as well as other Middle Eastern countries who had been recruited by the U.S. to thwart the Soviet invasion of this region.
