Granted, the source doesn't have the best reputation, but The New York Times is reporting what many have been complaining about for several years—that Iran is behind the nasty armor-splitting bombs responsible for killing and wounding 800 or so American troops.
Officials displayed the bombs last week to show proof of the so-called squat canisters that are designed to "explode and spit out molten balls of copper that cut through armor." Additionally, captured mortar shells and rocket-propelled grenades showed serial numbers directly linked to Iran arms factories. Although squat cannisters have been around since at least 2004, last year's casualties from these weapons more than doubled.
Those who believe Iran has no interest in Iraq might also enjoy the cartoon illustrated by cartoonist Ramirez last year. It showed a person reading to his child the final line out of Dems Fairy Tales: "So we immediately withdrew from Iraq and all the terrorists quit and we all lived happily ever after."
NEWS UPDATE: In an exclusive interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad refused to address accusations that his country was supplying weapons to insurgents in Iraq, saying instead that Iran asked for peace and was against conflict of any kind. Ahmadinejad skirted questions about weapons smuggling and stressed instead that the key to establishing peace in Iraq was for Americans, and all other foreigners, to leave. -ABC
