al Qaeda threatens Iran

| July 9, 2007

So, according to the Associated Press (by way of Fox News), al Qaeda in Iraq is threatening Iran to stop supporting Shi’ites;

Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, who leads the group Islamic State in Iraq , said his Sunni fighters have been preparing for four years to wage a battle against Shiite-dominated Iran.

“We are giving the Persians, and especially the rulers of Iran, a two-month period to end all kinds of support for the Iraqi Shiite government and to stop direct and indirect intervention … otherwise a severe war is waiting for you,” he said in the 50-minute audiotape released Sunday. The tape, which could not be independently verified, was posted on a Web site commonly used by insurgent groups.

So, I guess even our biggest enemy admitting that Iran is supplying anti-US militias in Iraq isn’t enough proof that we need to transform Iran into a vacant mudhole, huh?
