Haha, love this article: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17014430/site/newsweek/

And I especially loved this quote:

The views that have been expressed--that there were documents, that we were helping terrorists and [with the] transfer of weapons, and the things that American leaders announced--we say if there is proof they should show it.

Right. The US does the same thing, the British do the same thing, the Chinese have messed with other countries in the past (the Korean War was a doozie for them and the United States) and continue to meddle here and there, and especially the Russians have their hand in all sorts of under-the-table support and arms trade...it's hardly inconceivable that Iram, ostensibly the biggest military and political force in the region outside the US, wouldn't take advantage of a chance to disrupt American forces where they can. Especially after years of the Americans doing it to them. Riiighhht.

The Shiite versus Sunni conflict is such that you honestly can't tell who is which, unless it's noted who comes from which camp. Thus insurgents can grouped into just about any party desired. Same with nationalities in the region. Iranian, Saudi, Iraqi, I hate to say but those nationalities can pass for the one of the others easily enough.

Like the recent abduction and killing of four (five ended up killed) American soldiers in Iraq, passed off as an insurgent attack. BS. That was the work of Iranian SF. The tactics and equipment used there indicated a state-ran military unit, and one whose mission was expensive to mount. These kinds of activities by hostile nations aren't unknown. Hell, North Korea has been abducting South Korean and Japanese citizens for years using their military forces.

Yeah, Iran plays itself off as a "theological socialist nation" but can't but help play the same kind of games any nation with any kind of influence enjoys.
