Crossfire War: Middle East; Western Iraq – Staying Iran’s Course


Operation Quick Strike – More Powerful Weapons Coming From Iran for Islamic Resistance

Night Watch: BAGHDAD – An operation, Quick Strike, has just begun involving 1,000 Marines and Iraqi forces in western Iraq to attack and disrupt insurgents in the Euphrates River valley.

Residents in the area, reported by AP, that the city of Haqlaniyah, nearly 140 miles northwest of Baghdad, had been cordoned off and that U. S.-Iraqi forces began house to house searches.

This is just another exercise in futility. Very little if anything will be found crucial to the insurgent war effort and in the meantime other reports stated that U. S. forces have on occasion intercepted powerful explosives coming from Iran, the kind that may have been used in the massive road side bomb near Haditha.

The extremist Ansar al-Sunnah Army claimed responsibility for the attack. They are another vehicle for Iran’s policy of keeping the Lost Alliance chasing the Jihad around Iraq in a war that was supposed to have been over two years ago, while Iran absorbs Iraq’s new government. Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari studied Shiite religious theory in Qom and is currently meeting with the most senior Shiite cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani as they confer about the new constitution.

With one hand Iran arms the Islamic militants, fighters and extremists and with the other it works with Baghdad’s new government. The initiative is with Iran completely and will be until it is attacked. But in order for the U.S.-UK to do so they will require Iran’s permission. There is a mountain of evidence of Iran’s control of al-Qaeda not to mention Tehran’s obvious support of Islamic resistance groups like the rearming Muqtada al-Sadr, but very little if any complaining from either London or Washington.

This is just a small indication that Iran has over the two governments decision making through Bechtel Group, which was invited to Iran the day after the Gulf War ended in 1991, via Bechtel’s London branch office in Hyde Park, as shown on CNN.

If there were any sanity left in Washington or London they would launch Operation Quick Exit. Under this blind leadership these units will be unfit for duty on other fronts. But with their lack of vision London-Washington will continue to stay on Iran’s course of wasted effort.
