    Like the U.S. this administration doesnt seem to know how to enforce a border or for that matter admit they exist, so just as we have millions walking into this country so does Iraq. What does it take for this President to wake up ? what do you think these extremist are going to Iraq for a vacation? Start with the Border you idiots in Washington. Inept or just stupid i cant figure out these clowns. They just keep ignoring borders in a time of....... :cool: war???

    No, if they wanted a vacation they'd go to the Crawford Ranch.

    I'm sorry, is this the same Rumsfeld who told us he had proof that Saddam had 'large clandestine stockpiles' of sarin and VX?

    Even if he's telling the truth this time, no one will believe him. I wonder if anyone ever read 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf' to Rumsfeld when he was a child...

    George was too busy reading him the "Very Hungry Caterpillar" and "My Pet Goat". Didn't have time to get through "The Boy Who Cried Wolfowitz", I guess.

    Questions:

    Does Iran manufacture it's own weapons (eg assault rifles, RPGs)?

    Would they not be Chinese or Russian origin (for example)?

    Relatedly, are there not many US weapons in Iraq right now (not counting those used by our occupational force)? Should we scold ourselves?

    Is every weapon sale in a country necessarily state-sanctioned? Can you not go to a bazzaar and buy assault rifles out of a wicker basket (like Afghanistan/ Northern Frontier [Pakistan] )?

    seems like a little rhetorical exercise at the expense of international diplomacy...

    Now now, that is just plain mean! And I like it! :D

    Anyway, now that they once again have inarguable proof that one of the countries on axis of evil has weapons which they are selling to kill brave Usaites there must be no choice but attack, once they see that Iran will not stop it's nuclear power developement.. I think. :(

    Pretty constructive. My solution would be disabling USA from the nuclear talks & leave it to EU. They will do the exact opposite to your proposals, since they know that no matter what they do you will always come with some evidence of their secret wmd-programs. Irak destroyed everything but got attacked anyway. Not so encouraging, isn't it? Also notice the hastened pace of N-Korean nuclear development/threats...

    Good job, Uncle Sam! :D

    So the Iranian Shi'i are supplying weapons to the Sunni insurgents to use against the Shi'i Iraqi Government and US forces.
