As If Our Troops Don’t Have Enough To Worry About
January 27, 2007
ABC News is reporting that the Pentagon will soon be releasing evidence that Iran is and has been providing deadly weapons to insurgents in Iraq. This comes the day before Anti-War Protestors joined by several congressional figures and celebrities, including the infamous Hanoi Jane held an anti-war rally in Washington DC.
ABC News has learned the weapons include efps, explosively formed pentrators that can cut through the strongest armor.
This information comes as Washington is ratcheting up the pressure against the Middle East nation.
An official told ABC News that the administration is aggressively pursuing a “capture or kill” policy toward Iranians aiding the Iraqi insurgency.
“It makes sense that if somebody is trying to harm our troops or stop us from achieving our goal or killing innocent citizens in Iraq, that we will stop them,” Bush said.
So not only do our troops have to worry about the Iranians bringing deadly weapons into Iraq and arming the insurgents, but they also have to worry about whether they’re going to get the much needed support in order to complete their job in Iraq. To me, this sends a clear message not only to our troops but to the insurgency in Iraq. From where I’m sitting that message is, if we don’t follow through with the plans to reinforce the troops in Iraq and stop the insurgents, that the US is not going to keep their promises and that instead we’re going to cut and run. I know that’s NOT what the majority of the troops want. What they want is to be able to do their jobs the way they’re supposed to do their jobs, finish the job they were given and come home. It’s a shame that the desire for power that these people have is allowed to supersede the desire to do what’s right……. finish what we started.
