U.S. forces have found a cache(s) of Chinese made QW-1 MANPADs (mobile surface to air launchers){copies of our Stinger's-gotten from Pakistan} that were sold to Iran, but found next to opened crates and empty carriers of QW-1's in Basra...Iraq.

It was one thing to suspect that fighters were being sent...but were explained away by them being 'independents'. It was another to practically prove but not have concrete evidence of money being funneled to insurgents. But here is concrete evidence that Iran was engaging directly in actions against NATO.

We've been finding expended ammunition since 2004, but they had Iranian markings. These are Chinese marked, Iranian crated portable missile launchers.

And this is the same China that Republicans pushed and threatened another shut down of the government unless they were granted MFN status in 99/00. Great job, all the way around.

Does that really matter? Ask that and your diverting the question to partasan politics. Ask who let it slide and covered it up without throwing in the labels and you have made a point.

All the people, left right wings and center, who support this sorry mess are in bed together and should be addressed as so.

Almost sound as if the states supplying the money are letting the Iraqies and Afghans be their proxies.
