Iranians Found Fighting in Lebanon

It still seems that peace is an afterthought for both sides in the current conflict in Lebanon. There are rumors that an Israeli ground invasion could be coming soon...

There was one interesting, but not surprising, bit of news that came out of the Israeli/Hezbollah conflict today. This is according to Reuters:
Members of Iran's Revolutionary Guard have been found among Hizbollah guerrillas slain by Israeli forces in southern Lebanon, Israel's Channel 10 television reported on Wednesday citing diplomatic sources.

It said the Iranians were identified by documents found on their bodies, but gave no further details on how many were discovered or when. Neither the Israeli military nor Hizbollah representatives in Beirut had immediate comment on the report.

Iran, like fellow Hizbollah patron Syria, insists its support for the Shi'ite guerrilla group is purely moral.

Israel says many of the rockets being fired against its civilian and military targets are Iranian made, and that Hizbollah fighters taking on its forces trained in Iran. Washington also accuses Tehran of actively funding Hizbollah.

Iran's Revolutionary Guards are traditionally very close to fellow Shi'ite Muslims in Hizbollah and were deployed in south Lebanon in the 1980s.
According to the book One Bullet Away, the same exact thing happened in Iraq. You can read more about it at the BBC website.

What’s interesting to me is that the jihadists see no difference in fighting in Iraq, Lebanon, Afghanistan, or wherever they may be. It is all part of the world war that we find ourselves in now. Republicans understand this too. That is why President Bush invaded Iraq. Don’t give me this crap about Bush invading because of WMD. The mission was called Operation Iraqi Freedom. It was called that because President Bush believes (right or wrong) that democracy is possible in the Middle East, and that it is the best way to defeat terrorism.

Liberals in America and around the world do not understand this. I don’t think it’s because they are unable to understand, I think it is selective reasoning. The president is just someone they love to hate. He stole the 2000 election and a golden opportunity for Democrats to build a dynasty at the White House. As a result, we get to hear crazy arguments about wars for oil, conspiracy theories about Cheney's hunting accident, and even accusations of involvement in the 9/11 attacks.

The fact is that the Middle East is littered with terrorists and terrorist sympathizers. The US could have invaded any country in that region and made a decent argument for doing so after 9/11. We see that now with so-called "moderate" Lebanon. Why was Iraq chosen you ask? It will be a future blog...
