Iran Shipping Arms and Explosives to the Taliban

Breaking news from ABC:

NATO officials say they have caught Iran red-handed, shipping heavy arms, C4 explosives and advanced roadside bombs to the Taliban for use against NATO forces, in what the officials say is a dramatic escalation of Iran's proxy war against the United States and Great Britain.

"It is inconceivable that it is anyone other than the Iranian government that's doing it," said former White House counter-terrorism official Richard Clarke, an ABC News consultant.

Secretary of Defense Robert Gates stopped short earlier this week of blaming Iran, saying the U.S. did not have evidence "of the involvement of the Iranian government in support of the Taliban."

But an analysis by a senior coalition official, obtained by the Blotter on ABCNews.com, concludes there is clear evidence of Iran's involvement.

"This is part of a considered policy," says the analysis, "rather than the result of low-level corruption and weapons smuggling."

Already the left is discounting the story claiming the MSM has always hyped a war for the administration. The real story here may be that Richard Clarke, absolutely no fan of the Bush Administration said ""It is inconceivable that it is anyone other than the Iranian government that's doing it."

There is no doubt in my mind however, that Bush will ignore this provocation because he is so enmeshed with other things such as the Amnesty Bill (go ahead, call it what it is) and the war in Iraq.

Currently there are also 4 Iranian American hostages being held on bogus spy charges and there are some indicators that we are going to negotiate their release. My suggestion would be 40 or 50 cruise missiles targeted at Iranian military installations. Then deny we did it. After all, that is the Iranian strategy.

No surprise, here. Iran and Syria have been behind the majority of the terrorism worldwide, and it's about time the world begins to realize the Hitleric enemy we have in Ahmadinejad.

I also believe that Bush will ignore this development. He's off on a tangent--cramming the amnesty bill down America's throat.

I think it's more interesting that this is even news. There's people that question this "development?" Hello, it's IRAN.

Maybe the CIA will send Joe Wilson to study this and convince us that these aren't really weapons and that Iran has nothing to do with them.

I think the USA should give the cruise missiles to the elected Iraqi and Afghan gov'ts, and let them fire them at the Mullahs, if they choose. We should pay them for each missile they choose to fire.
