Weapons from Iran Discovered in Iraq's Port CityTopics: Iran
Iran's been caught again shipping weapons into Iraq, likely meant for Shi'a Muslims to use in attacking Sunni, U.S., and Iraqi Forces.
An array of weapons made in Iran were discovered in Iraq's southern port city of Um Qasr, the Iraqi television channel al-Zora reported on Monday.I continue to be amazed as to why the Bush administration tolerates Iran and Syria's obvious acts of war against the U.S., Iraq, and yes, Israel. It's as though the only way the administration will act against Iran is if they nuke Manhattan - and I'm begining to wonder if even then Iran wouldn't get a pass. Bush continues to talk the talk without walking the walk. We're in dire need of some testosterone in the white house.
In the weapons cache were hundreds of Katyusha rockets and mortar shells as well as several thousand light arms, the report said, adding that the weapons had all been manufactured in neighbouring Iran.
The weapons were discovered in the city's al-Hora district, it said.
Um Qasr, the country's largest deepwater port city, is close to the city of Basra which Iraqi officials say has become a hub for agents of Iran's Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS).
