Here's another perspective for those who are willing to turn the Middle-East into a sheet of glass - Doubting the Evidence Against Iran - Yahoo! News (broken link) (good read..)

Sounds like Iraq and the case for WMD's all over again.

Oh well, i guess it's time to bomb, bomb, bomb.....bomb, bomb, bomb...doo whey..bomb, bomb bomb. I'll be shockin' and an awin'....

From your own link, the US case against the Qods Force contributing to the Iraq turbulence appears justified:

the longstanding assertion that the Qods Force, a paramilitary wing of the Iranian army, trains Iraqi militants inside Iran and then supports their guerrilla activity back in Iraq. The U.S. military has offered its most convincing public argument on this point, revealing details in July 2007 of the interrogation of an alleged Hizballah operative captured in Basra. TIME also interviewed two Iraqi guerrilla fighters who said they trained in Iran.

Looks like what we were doing with the Kurds before 2003.

Default Don't buy it!

You can read every story from every supposed independent news agency in this country and you still will only be fed what the true rulers of this country want you to here. All the networks and papers get their news from one source. It is their job to report what they are told, not really go out and report the news. The days of the true investigative reporter are over. Watching the news every night only insures you get your daily dose of government approved propaganda. This is the land of the free. So let's free the press once again. And just like John Mayer's song says, "when they own the information, they can bend it all they want!" Thanks for reading.

Do you have independant corroboration of this? Oh, wait. It is in writing, never mind....not beliveable anymore. I only listen to hearsay and rumor as nobody really owns that information so it must be true.

Attacking Iran will unfortunately be the last coffin of the American domination of the world. Already as a result of the ill-guided invasion of Iraq, we have created too much enemies in the world and are seen as aggressors and arrogant by much of the world. Attacking Iran for having a nuclear program that has yet to be proven to be headed for a nuclear bomb program at a time when Israel is the ONLY country in the Mid-East to actually HAVE nuclear weapons will expose the hypocrisy of our foreign policy and will in no way contribute to our national security, in fact we would end up being more susceptible to terror attacks as attacks against our interests throughout the world will increase. I see no reason why Iran should not have nuclear bombs when EVERY nation in its back-yard has one.

Well you better let Hillary know this, because she said she wants to Nuke Iran. But then again, she voted FOR the Iraq war, so I guess it is in keeping with her world domination plans.
