Neocon Iranian Mortar Ruse Fizzles

“America today blamed Iran for the deaths of 170 US troops inside Iraq, accusing Teheran of supplying insurgents with increasingly sophisticated bombs,” reports the neocon-infested UK Telegraph, a trusty propaganda tool.

“Senior defense officials in Baghdad said that Iranian-supplied “explosively formed projectiles” were frequently being used against coalition forces” and “the ‘highest levels’ of Iran’s regime were responsible for giving them to Shia militias in Iraq.”

Although the Telegraph does not mention what particular Shi’a group would use the purported Iranian “explosively formed projectiles” against American troops, we must assume they are making reference to Muqtada al-Sadr’s Mahdi army. In general, Shi’a militias are too busy killing Sunnis, and vice versa, although late last month the killing of five American soldiers at a supposedly secure U.S. facility in Karbala was blamed on “Iranian intelligence agents in conjunction with Iraq’s Shiite Mahdi Army militia,” according to the Examiner. For some unexplained reason these militant Shi’ites decided to dump the bodies of their victims in the town of Mahawil, a predominantly Sunni area.

But never mind. As the photo above supposedly demonstrates, the Pentagon has seized a number of 81mm mortar rounds, used as roadside bombs. “These bombs are specially designed to penetrate heavily armored military vehicles and are capable of crippling the US army’s main battle tank, the Abrams M1,” the Telegraph ominously reports, or rather reads from a Pentagon script. “They have killed 170 US troops since June 2004, according to the American officials. They added that some weapons have been captured and they bore the hallmarks of having been manufactured in Iran…. Many were made as recently as last year—ruling out the possibility that they could have been left over from the many arms caches scattered across Iraq by Saddam Hussein’s regime.”

Of course, as this is a sloppy neocon ruse, as per usual, there is a problem here. Can you guess what it is?

If you guessed the date, you win a Cupie doll. For some reason the geniuses at the Pentagon have failed to explain why the Iranians used a date from the Christian Gregorian calendar and not one from the Islamic Persian calendar. According to the Muslim calendar, the date stenciled on this mortar shell should read 1427, not 2006. And why did Iran, a country speaking and writing in Persian, a language written in a version of the Arabic script, decide to label their shells in English? Maybe they thought it would fool the infidels?

I’m not taking the bait. As usual, this attempt to frame Muslims stinks of neocon sloppiness. Once again, the neocons blow it. Not that it particularly matters, as most Americans are oblivious and, besides, millions of them still think Osama and Saddam are twin brothers................

Bush and his team are at it again ( weapons of mass destruction, Al Queda connection, in reference to the Iraq war ), trying to " Manufacture Consent " for a war on Iran. Hopefully, the spotlight of critical consideration will create an atmosphere were such a move will be stopped. The US Empire is bleeding profusely ( economically, degradation of our reputation, wasting enormous resources on these wars ), trying to maintain its grasp on world energy, and therefor power and influence. But the rest of the world, see's clearly now just what Bush and his Cabal are trying to do, and will make decisive moves to counter the aggressive tactics made by the recent US administration under Bush's control. But when push comes to shove, who hands down is standing on the biggest pile of Nuclear Weapons? But of course, the US is a benevolent and caring nation, that by its policy always shows that its base interest, is in saftey and security of all world citizens, and therefor, presents no threat with its thousands of nuclear weapons. Anybody that believes this however, is delusional. With the US holding all these nukes, and with the coming stress of Peak Oil, and building Climate Change, we desperately need sane and sensible people in positions of government in the US. Right now, we have a Cocky Cowboy, who is all to Trigger Happy, not good, when the gun is a nuclear weapon. And this is the guy, who has never served in military, and was even by all reasonable standards AWOL in terms of his National Gaurd duty, but said with ease, regarding the Iraqi insurgents, " BRING EM ON ", knowing full well that he would never face a hail of gunfire, because of his stupendously careless statement.
