    U.S. military says finding more Iranian arms in Iraq - By Paul Tait

    BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The quantity of Iranian bomb-making components being found in Iraq is increasing despite a fall in attacks and 20 Iranian-trained agents are still operating south of Baghdad, a top U.S. general said on Sunday.

    Extensive Iranian influence in Iraq remained evident, said Major-General Rick Lynch, despite signs of a possible easing of tensions between Washington and Tehran over security in Iraq.

    "Iranian influence is dominant at many levels," said Lynch, whose area of command extends from Baghdad's southern suburbs south through Sunni Arab insurgent strongholds to the major Shi'ite cities of Kerbala and Najaf.

    but of course the left thinks we shouldn't be "picking" on "poor little Iran" and we need to cut and run in Iraq. :BangHead:

    Our military won in Iraq years ago. It is time to bring them home with the hero's welcome they all deserve for a job well done.

    Naw but I do recall this is how WMD got us into Iraq. Now I guess we'll invade Iran because 20 Iranian-trained agents are operating south of Baghdad and a few bomb parts appear to be from Iran. Don't they all get their stuff from the Soviets?
