Iran opens garrison to recruit suicide bombers against West

This is a declaration of war. The time has come to deal with Iran and depose the mullahs. Ideally, it should happen as a NATO strike, but if European appeasement blocks this possibility, than I hope the Israelis and the Americans go it alone. Somebody has to do this:

Iran opens garrison to recruit suicide bombers against West

A military garrison has been opened in Iran to recruit and train volunteers for “martyrdom-seeking operations”, according to the garrison’s commander, Mohammad-Reza Jaafari. Jaafari, a senior officer in the elite Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), told a hard-line weekly close to Iran’s ultra-conservative President-elect Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that the new “Lovers of Martyrdom Garrison” would recruit individuals willing to carry out suicide operations against Western targets. “The Lovers of Martyrdom Garrison has been activated and we will form a Martyrdom-seeking Division for each province in the country, organised in brigades, battalions and companies to defend Islam”, Jaafari told the weekly Parto-Sokhan. “The United States should know that we have nuclear weapons, but they are in the hearts of our suicide bombers”, Jaafari added.

Iran tightens control over Internet

The Iranian government has tightened its control over the Internet, increasingly blocking content in its national language of Farsi and restricting what citizens can publish through Web journals, Western researchers say. Iran shows a sophistication in filtering seen only in China and a few other countries, adapting its techniques as use of the Internet evolves, said John Palfrey, a Harvard University researcher who studied censorship in Iran for the OpenNet Initiative.

Don't forget we are spending billons of dollars and many lives lost so the Prime minister of Iraq Ibrahim al-Jaafari, can fly to Iran and lay a wreath on Khomeini's tomb and declare brotherly ties between the two nations.

A nation and person who gave us the Iranian hostage crises and who seeks to curtail women's rights in Iraq,just like Iran.

At the same time, however, Iran is shipping in shaped explosives that help take out Iraqi citizens as well as US soldiers.

And don't forget that 1 million lives were lost in the Iran/Iraq war, and that included Shia fighting Shia.

This is not automatically a rapprochment, although I admit it is worrisome.
