Oh come on.... This doesn't even pass the laugh test and I'd just bet the Muslims here will agree. Al Qaeda is "The Base" of extremist SUNNI
thinking, fighting and attack. Iran is the spiritual home and center of the Shia sect of the Islamic Faith. I know this seems like a small and petty
thing to many in the West but these people were fighting over this before the U.S. even had a name or people from Europe living here. It's a REAL BIG
thing to them.
To suggest that Iran is running Al Qaeda teams is simply absurd. It's as logical as the propaganda in 2002 suggesting Saddam had something to do with
9/11. Scare tactics that come JUST close enough to true (Iran DOES support Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and Hamas...which are NOT Sunni extremist
groups..) to be believable but not accurate enough to believe.
We DO have Al Qaeda enemies and if people want to suggest we didn't in 2001...fine. I disagree, but we've been bombing the crap out of them for over
a decade now. Who wasn't an enemy then, sure IS now. Whatever we weren't fighting then are VERY real enemies at this point.
We ALSO do have Iran through Hezbollah right in Mexico running smuggling and other things for funding back home...and some inside the US in the open.
No question. Who knows how many aren't openly known.
The future is an interesting thing to look at ...lets just be careful to keep the sides straight is all I say. There ARE very distinct and separate
sides and it isn't 'kill 'em all', by any stretch, IMO.
