Look Who Really Is Killing American Soldiers (Hint, Not Israel)

Iran is killing American and coalition soldiers in Afghanistan.

And not because Israel issued a building permit for more homes in an already Jewish neighborhood of Jerusalem.

As reported by the Times of London, Iranians train Taliban to use roadside bombs:

TALIBAN commanders have revealed that hundreds of insurgents have been trained in Iran to kill Nato forces in Afghanistan.

The commanders said they had learnt to mount complex ambushes and lay improvised explosive devices (IEDs), which have been responsible for most of the deaths of British troops in Helmand province.

The accounts of two commanders, in interviews with The Sunday Times, are the first descriptions of training of the Taliban in Iran.

According to the commanders, Iranian officials paid them to attend three-month courses during the winter....

Shi’ite Iran had long opposed the Sunni-dominated Taliban. The reason for the change was summarised by one Taliban commander who said of the Iranians: “Our religions and our histories are different but our target is the same. We both want to kill Americans.”

While Obama sends Hillary Clinton to launch into a verbal tirade against our close ally Israel, the Obama administration continues to ignore that Iran is at war with us. Whether we want to admit it or not.

Update: Obama today renewed his offer of "dialogue" with the Iranian regime as part of a taped holiday greeting in which Obama said:

"We are familiar with your grievances from the past - we have our own grievances as well, but we are prepared to move forward. We know what you're against; now tell us what you're for."

I will save the President the wait and the wonder. They are "for" destroying Israel, driving us from the Middle East (even after they destroy Israel) and all Muslim lands, destroying any government which supports us, and for the expansion of their hegemony over the greater Persian Gulf region. Got it?

  1. Not surprising, but still amazing. This is yet another example of the bumbling fools in DC playing at foreign policy. Repel our allies, embrace our enemies. That'll make 'em love America! Sickening. Pathetic.

    Totally OT - suggestion for the "Sat. Night Card Game" post: the CNN report of DC Tea Party protesters labeled as racists without ANY video, sound, or eye witness interviews (see video on HotAir "Headlines"/Mediaite).

  2. I have posted on the report delivered by the US military command in Afghanistan obtained by the White House and on its conclusion that Israel needed to be reined in so that our troops would not be at greater risk than they are already.

    Say that the above were true. Does it help that the Obama Administration did its very best to blow up whatever IT THOUGHT happened. I have also said that at a delicate point in the peace process as this was, for Obama to remain in Washington and to send Biden in his stead was a toxic PR demonstration. Obama fiddled while Rome burned.

    I am not surprised that Iran was involved in training the Taliban. They have been involved in training Iraqis.

    It is difficult to know what is information and what is disinformation in all of this. I am not at all sure that the Obama Administration did not overreact with a purpose.or that the Israeli building permit's release was not timed by both parties to a purpose. Having public proof that things are not going well between the allies may support some goal of which we are unaware. I just don't take things at face value in the Middle East anymore. This is wartime. And disinformation is real.

    Whatever is going on, I don't believe for a minute that the US - Israeli relationship was seriously damaged in the view of the central parties. I do believe that the Obama Administration is full of men and women acting badly at all times and in all places. I have my own war of the classes going on and in my view, this Administration may be fully defined as LOW CLASS - SECOND RATE - and generally LACKING. Old souls such as I can say these things. We are thought ridiculous in any event.

"I do believe that the Obama Administration is full of men and women acting badly at all times and in all places. ...in my view, this Administration may be fully defined as LOW CLASS - SECOND RATE - and generally LACKING. Old souls such as I can say these things. We are thought ridiculous in any event."

    Well said. If more "old souls" were so wise, perhaps we would not be where we are not. Not ridiculous - wisdom.

  4. Too many in the Obama administration were those who, in 2003-2006, were cheering on the insurgents in Iraq when they killed American troops. Now they are in charge--why would they change at all.

    Democrats are our enemies, possibly more than AlQueda or the Taliban. They are not just classless second-rate thinkers, they are active enemies who want the USA to lose. When will everyone realize this??

  5. Thank you for your support of my ancient ways, DINORightMarie. It is gratifying.

    Having read the article in the "Jerusalem Post" about Why Obama is making war on Israel, I have concluded that Obama will meet with Netanyahu when he is in Washington for the AIPAC meeting but in deference to the Muslim world, he will make him depart through the same portal as the Dalai Lama - the back door past a row of garbage cans.

    Obama and the quartet keep forgetting one important thing: Little Israel is all that stands between the Muslim Middle East and Europe. The Quartet and Obama in particular know this and will have to do the right thing by Israel in the end. This has been the history of the relations between Israel and the West. You cannot overturn a decades old policy overnight because you want to treat all comers equally and quell Arab, European and US voices that demand a tougher stand on Israel. As in health care, Obama has staged a takeover of policy in the Middle East without regard to cost - in human life.

    Beside Iran, just guess which large, rich country is possibly also behind Obama's current ire: China. It has emerged as a partner in trade and politics as well as in Pakistan, etc. Oh and don't forget Brazil's Lula knocking at the door to play a role in negotiations by acting as unilaterally as Obama. It's getting pretty messy over there.

    Who the H. wants to bet on the outcome of this? One thing is certain. No matter the public pro-Iran policy, if Obama rails at Israel and gains Muslim love and understanding, an Israeli strike on Iran will not be seen to include the US. A win-win for Obama who does not want Iran to develop nuclear power in the region. Sorry to hammer home my conspiracy theories. I hope I have not been watching too many action movies - hey this old thing loves them!

  6. PS: Anyone notice that Russia may bid on construction of tanker for US? Appeasement continues. Anyone remember Lord Chamberlain of Britain and his "agreement" with Hitler?
