OPEN SECRETS - U.S. FUNDING TERRORISTS IN IRAN

According to the Telegraph (U.K.)

America is secretly funding militant ethnic separatist groups in Iran in an attempt to pile pressure on the Islamic regime to give up its nuclear programme.

In a move that reflects Washington's growing concern with the failure of diplomatic initiatives, CIA officials are understood to be helping opposition militias among the numerous ethnic minority groups clustered in Iran's border regions.

Read the whole story.

My only response -- its about time. America has been a very bloody punching bag for Iranian and Iranian sponsored terrorism for the past quarter century and really has never reacted. If we had responded to the Hostage Crisis, the bombing of the barracks in Lebanon, or Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, or the kidnapping, torture and murder of high profile U.S. agents in the 80's, we would probably not be in the position that we are now. Better late then never, I guess. I so sincerely hope that we are able to resolve this short of open war.

So.. inciting and then funding Saddam Hussien to attack Iran in a war that killed over a half million Iranians doesn't qualify as a reacion?

If we're somehow "keeping track" of who has attacked and screwed over who, then America is ahead by far.
