Originally posted by Muaddib they think Castro is a good man and that no attrocities are happening in Cuba simply because some Canadian friends of this member, who seem to be either communists or socialists, are saying this.


HAHHA What a laugh. Did they have a explanation of why Cubans try to come over here any chance they get? If Castro is SUUUCH a good man and the US is suuch a terrible place why aren't boat loads of Americans going to Cuba?

For those of you that don't know people are dying in Iraq. Should Iran help the coalition forces, the terrorists in Iraq have the capabilities of firing long range missiles into Iran.

Where did you get the idea that the terrorists in Iraq have long range missiles? Do you have a source for this information? One would have to ask why they haven't used them against the coalition if they have them.


The build up of troops along the border are for good measures. The US could send spies into Iran or Muslim extremists from Iraq could enter into Iran and take refuge.

As has been stated, this amount of troops is far too small to prevent this.


There has also been rising speculation that the UN are asking Bush to return Sadaam Hussein back to Iraq.

This has been the plan since before we yanked his scruffy butt from the spider hole - to turn him over to the new Iraqi government. But we are not going to turn him over until we are sure he will face justice for his crimes. The UN has no say in this; they have been of zero assistance so far, so why should we consider their wishes now?

Ya, I know, but I am telling you there are people who are being fed this kind of crap and they believe it. Some people even take news from Al Jazeera when it is known and even stated by other countries like Spain that AL Jazeera supports terrorism and many of their members have been seen and caught in places that were about to be attacked by terrorists, but some people still believe Al Jazeera over other news sources....that's the kind of crap some people are being fed.

BTW, to stay on topic Iran is saying that it is not true that they are grouping troops in the border of Iran/Iraq, that it is a lie so that the US and the rest of the coallition can attack them.... Sorry, but that's bs.

Iran is getting ready for something, June 30th is still two weeks away and they should know that the US is not going to get out completly of Iraq, if we do this is going to be hell in there and we will be blamed for it. Power will be transferred to the Iraqi government but some US troops will most probably remain there for a while longer. This latest move of Iran should not come as a surprise and much less after the last threat from Iran that they have 29 targets that they will attack with missiles.

Also, there have been some reports of jihadi sites that have been talking about new cyber attacks for a few days and look at what happened today. I think terrorists with the help of some governments, like Iran and others..., are getting ready for a new series of attacks, and Iran is part of this.

Hey, that is part of the hole idea of making Iraq a democracy like US so we can teach them to make mooshine American way. No wonder Iran is keeping their borders under watch in case McDonald decide to run from Americanize Iraq into Islamic Iran.

iran is afraid. no army can stand against the americans, period. iraq is just a stepping stone in the war on terror, iran, syria, north korea, phillipines, and indonesia to name a few, are other theaters of action. one should not be so naive to think iraq is the end, it is, rather, the beginning. in peacetime, in los angeles, in any given year, 600 are murdered, and that is just one u.s. city, in peacetime, so, during war, when the enemy is giving the americans all they got, and kill only 800 or so soldiers, not to minimilize their deaths, but for the enemy to kill that minimal a number of u.s. troops is amazing. gee, on d-day, the normandy invasion, how many allied troops were killed???? in one day???? was it not in the thousands? iran is afraid, very afraid. the u.s. military has not recently, and certainly in iraq has not, unleashed anywhere near the firepower at their disposal. iran is afraid. their nuclear program will likely soon be destroyed, either by the israelis, or the americans. possibly iran does not see the u.s. military moving west when departing iraq, but rather they anticipate an easterly advance. the global stakes are high. the enemy made a grave error in attacking the seat of american military might, the pentagon, and they continue to pay the price. the determination of the americans in this war on terror is unmistakable, and the end is not in sight.

Not to say that this has to be the reason, but it is a straightforward motivation. This is the first time I heard Iran pushing this idea in any way -- before it was always denial, peaceful purposes, etc. So if the US decides to call airstrikes to waste Iran's nuclear capability, Iran wants to be able to hit back. Just like North Korea's immediate targets are US troops in South Korea and Japan, Iran's immediate targets are US troops in Iraq. No?





What if Israel calls an air strike against iran and they think its the US if they attack us without us prevoking them iran wll get its a$$ whooped

Their pissed because Iraq is getting Pizza Hut, Burger King StarBucks, cable TV, WI-fi capabilities and probably a Super Wal-Mart. They figure if they step up to the plate, rattle the cages, maybe we too will lberate the people and give them consumer goods and billions in AID. Hell, if thats the case, lets start a war in Philly or Detriot.

As far as the troop movement,Christ, there is a WAR going on in a country who borders you, and people expect there not to be tropp movements???

It is time to stop, read a book with your kids and pop some popcorn. get back to where America used to be. Not a bunch of frightened sheep, but a country where you could trust your neighbor and fall asleep at night knowing there was a dream you could attain....

It seems to me that Iran has more to gain by maintaining the status quo in the region right now. If Iran wants to be the new "nuclear kid" on the block, it would seem logical to have this token force deployed to control border crossing by radicals.

They can afford to wait until the US forces are mostly gone (in about 1-2 years). Then they can start their insurgency movement. I would hope by then that Iraq would have a legitimate army (hopefully US friendly).

Just my thoughts.

Iran announced a few days ago that they're going to go ahead with the development of several oil fields it shares with Iraq without Iraqi consent. One guess is that the the four brigades are going to that region, which must border Iraq (SW Iran, SE Iraq) to bring order to that area and to guard that development process - www.worldtribune.com...

I recalled too, just prior to last spring's invasion of Iraq, mention of the Badr Brigade in Northern Iraq. Perhaps this is a reincarnation - abcnews.go.com...

with the wave of a hand the green zone can be turned into the Alamo with the same results.

I sure hope it doesn't happen, a lot of men die young in wars
the condition of the forces in Iraq is deteriorating by the minute ,and are in no condition for another senseless war like Iraq in Iran.

But considering the way the Neocons have made themselves all criminals
they have nothing to lose now .It is the foot soldier that dies while these criminals get old .

Or because the US has masses of soldiers in Iraq and has repeatedly threatened Iran.

I'm sure if, say, North Korea invaded Canada and Mexico the US might have soldiers near the borders. Strange how foreign troops surrounding your country might make you a bit skittish.
