Iran leader blames U.S. for bombings in Iraq


www.newsdaily.com

TEHRAN, Apr. 25, 2009 (Reuters) — Iran's top authority said on Saturday that U.S. forces were "the main suspects" in bomb attacks that killed dozens of Iranian pilgrims in Iraq this week.

"The main suspects in this crime and crimes similar to that, are American security and military forces," Khamenei said in a statement about two bombings in Iraq on Thursday and Friday.

Quoted by state media, he said "evil hands and minds" had established "blind and uncontrollable terrorism" in Iraq.

so do you think Iran will retaliate in some way? and further more do you think this was set up by the USA to get Iran to strike back, or some kind of retaliation to justify the USA/Israel going into war with Iran.

its been on the Agenda for a long time, we all knew it was hanging on the edge with the smallest push sending it over

could this be the first step towards an USA/Israel war on Iran?

especially with this Swine Flu "Outbreak" which i find complete bollocks and i think it's either man made, or purposely set out to infect the masses... could it be a distraction for what could happen with Iran?

it's all smoke and mirrors anyway

Who would have ever thought Iran would blame the US for something. Yeah I am sure the US really blew up a bunch of innocent people and created a new Swine flew just to get the Iranians to react and the US distracted so we would have an excuse to bomb them. Come on this is ridiculous. If we wanted to bomb Iran we could just bomb Iran. The US doesnt have to do anything, because the Israeli military would bomb Iran in a second if we would take the leash off of them.

A swine flew could potentially kill more americans than we would kill Iranians. If that is part of the US plan then we are even dumber than I thought we were.

They don't have to retaliate.

The US and israel are doing a fine job in bringing their ends themselves.

The US keeps spending and is going to go bankrupt,

and israel is going to bomb Iran and face the consequences from Russia and China through themselves or arming Iran.

One cure for avoiding bankruptcy is to kill all the people that you owe money to and their allies.
Not that I think that would be right. Just saying.

Here's a little snippet from an article in another thread here in the Alternative News forum, ...

Suicide bombers kill at least 60 Iraqis at Shiite shrine


In the second day in a row of heavy violence in Iraq, at least 60 people died Friday when two suicide bombers detonated within seconds of each other outside a Shiite Muslim shrine in Baghdad.

Violence in Iraq has been creeping up steadily since March or so. In Baghdad alone, there have been at least 35 explosions so far this month.

More than 80 people died in two suicide attacks Thursday, one in Baghdad and another in the northeastern province of Diyala. The resurgent sectarian violence is raising concerns that security in Iraq is deteriorating just as the United States prepares to draw down its forces and shift its focus to the deteriorating conditions in Afghanistan and Pakistan.


This has all happened before.



Several victims and witnesses said they blamed the recent bombings on al-Qaida in Iraq. The U.S. military has said it thinks that the group's ability to carry out major attacks has been reduced severely, but the renewed violence could indicate otherwise.

"The source of this is well-known," said Ali Faisel, 33. "It's al-Qaida. They want to provoke sectarian problems and ruin the security situation."

Witnesses said at least one of the bombers was female, and that she shouted, "God is great," in Arabic just before detonating.


Seems like people in Iraq should know a little more about what's going on around them than some Iranian "leader" sitting in his palace in Iran.

OK, let's see now. Iran claims to be developing nuclear power for purely peaceful purposes, to develop a source of energy. Right. They're sitting on one of the largest oil deposits in the world. They really need nuclear power.

We all know Iran is developing nuclear power for weapons. Ahmadinejad has repeatedly asserted his desire and intention to wipe Israel off the map. It's understandable that Israel might be a wee bit concerned about Iran, especially an Iran that is trying to develop nuclear weapons.

When Iraq was trying to develop nuclear reactors, the world stood by wringing their hands, doing absolutely nothing. Israel sent jets over to bomb the construction site, effectively ending Iraq's nuclear program. The Israelis chose a day when the site would be closed. As a result, there was only a single fatality, a scientist who was working overtime there. The world was in an uproar over that, of course. But that act is one of the reasons we didn't find any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

Now we've got another rogue state, Iran, gearing up to build nuclear weapons. Once again, the world is standing by wringing their hands, deploring this buildup, and doing nothing about it. Iran has made it clear that it wants to annihilate Israel. Once again, Israel is getting nervous. They have every right to do whatever they can to prevent Iran from using a nuke against them.

As for the US being responsible for the bombings, well, yes. We tore into Iraq and completely destroyed their infrastructure and government. Suicide bombings in Iraq were extremely rare before we interfered. Sure, Hussein was killing hundreds, maybe even thousands of innocent Iraqis. We've killed hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis. We've also removed all restraints holding back the Sunni's from the Shi'ites, meaning they are now slaughtering each other at an alarming rate. When we leave there, Iraq will descend into a bloody civil war. We *are* responsible for this.
