Hoping he’s wrong, afraid he’s not

Posted by Charles II on April 6, 2008

Damien McElroy, the Torygraph (via ICH):

British officials gave warning yesterday that America’s commander in Iraq will declare that Iran is waging war against the US-backed Baghdad government.


A strong statement from General David Petraeus about Iran’s intervention in Iraq could set the stage for a US attack on Iranian military facilities, according to a Whitehall assessment. In closely watched testimony in Washington next week, Gen Petraeus will state that the Iranian threat has risen as Tehran has supplied and directed attacks by militia fighters against the Iraqi state and its US allies. 


Write those letters and make those phonecalls, lest you be complicit in this.

    Just a “heads up” to the troll patrol.

    Have you checked out the blog the last commenter linked to? If not, you might want to be a bit careful if and when.

    Don’t do so too soon after eating.

    Haven’t you heard of the European Indigenous Peoples before, Stormcrow?

    I suppose they’re known more commonly as Neanderthal Man.
