US accuses Iran of supplying Iraqi
US intelligence believes that a cache of manufactured bombs seized in
Iraq about two weeks ago was smuggled into the country from Iran by the
Iranian Revolutionary Guard.
"We believe they came from Iran's Revolutionary Guards," the official told
AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity.
The find is significant not only because of the Iranian connection but also
because it indicates manufactured bombs are now being introduced in a conflict
that has seen the use of mainly improvised explosive devices.
"I think we believe there is more of them out there, that this is just the
first cache we've actually obtained," the official said.
He said intelligence analysts had "fairly high confidence" that the bombs
came from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.
So will we see this used as yet another excuse to go to war with Iran? At
this point nothing will shock me. You can bet the administration is already
looking at it and also considering the ties Iran has with China and Russia.
