Taliban fighters training in Iran, U.S. officials say


www.cnn.com

Washington (CNN) -- Iran is helping train Taliban fighters within its borders, according to U.S. military and intelligence officials.

The United States has already said that the Taliban may be receiving limited training from the Iranians in Afghanistan, but the officials told CNN that training in the use of small arms was occurring within Iran.

"We've known for some time that Iran has been a source for both materiel and trained fighters for Taliban elements in Afghanistan," Army Lt. Col. Edward Sholtis said Monday. But, he said, it is unknown whether that training is occurring with th

Unreal. It has begun. What's next? "Saddam has shipped his WMD to Iran when the US invaded Iraq - and now Ahmedinejahd has them?"

How many times will we expand the war due to some statement from some official who is privvy to secret knowledge?

And you know what? It may be true! Because neither Iran, nor the US, nor the Israeli nor the Taliban leadership gives a damn about the people they are supposed to represent, because this world still revolves around money, power, profit.

Until we change this fundamental principle of our 'civilization' we can only dream (and get lied to) about change.

The War drums are beating all right, we've seen this demonization process quite a few times now haven't we?

The powers that be probably do want to stitch up Iran in the long run. At the same time Iran funds and trains terrorists all round the Middle East so it's possibly true. The US does seem to be ratcheting up the Iran issue as each day passes, maybe it's getting a little nervy that Israel is about to go off the leash and needs to demonise it ASAP

They have been planting the seed in peoples.. sorry sheeples mind for a long while now... it's only a matter of time

we knew it was on the agenda to take out Iran, and yes we have been "predicting" this for a long time... but every day it's a little bit more, and a little bit more..


this is long term conditioning for the people. they take it one step at a time, until you feel it was your choice and in your best interest for them to bomb Iran..

The military says it so it must be true. Of course they don't want a war, wars are terrible.

Then again, say you are an officer looking for advancement, war provides a perfect opportunity. Or a bureaucrat. Or a politician looking to funnel funds to the corporations that do military related work in your state.

And of course the intelligence services benefit from any sort of chaos.

Oh yeah, don't forget the media. The only bigger news than war is natural disasters (well, maybe a nip slip).

Crap! I think maybe the people who benefit from war may outnumber the people who are against it.

Makes one wonder, what if Al Qaeda were training in Germany, or China, or Hell, what about Iceland....


I wonder if the headlines will get so stupid or predictable, that we will stop even posting.... Naww, that'll never happen, not with so much to choose from, and with most of us being unemployed anyway...

Oh well....

So it begins... The conditioning of hatred towards Iran has been building up lately, and if this getting paraded on CNN, im sure were bound to see a repeat of Iraq....
Get the sheeple ready, distract them from the healthcare reform with a new war.

The last paragraph scared me though. I mean what better way to set up Iran? Textbook CIA black-ops. They've been doing it for decades...

Keep your eyes and ears open for any further evidence of SAM missles, because this would be the perfect pretext for a war with Iran. Nukes & SAMs. Fear mongering. Im sick of it all.

Shhhh... don't anyone tell the U.S. officials that the CIA has trained and funded terrorists for decades...we don't want Langley to get bombed. And be real quiet when talking about how the 'hijackers' were trained to fly at American flight schools,some of which have links to the CIA,some which have links to Boy Bush,and some which are linked to Warren Buffet.Let's keep this quiet people,we don't need them bombing the U.S.

Thank you for that very astute observation. As long as they are terrorizing some other people, then they are still freedom-fighters ?
By the way, the world is not flat...

you said it right. but the USA needs saudi arabia because without them there will be peace in the middle east and therefore the presence of the USA is not needed. saudi arabia is the cause of chaos and unrest in the region, they fund terrorists on US orders, then the US say right, lets go and sort it out... they'r all friends

I was watching a public television special on Iran last night. What a beautiful country filled with wonderful people. Like all countries and all governments there are some evil and bad ones. But I think many Iranians, especially younger generations are like Americans in a lot of ways. I think it would be a huge travesty if the US was involved in a war with Iran. Why not support regime change through diplomatic ways and supporting the opposition to the current government? If our government feels violence is the only answer and war.............they better watch their back..............because as an American sick and tired of my government........if there is a violent movement to topple my own government I will support it any way I can. The US government is completely out of control. And it/they need to be stopped.
