    SULAIMANIYA, Iraq (Reuters) - Kurdish authorities in northeastern Iraq said on Tuesday they were investigating the authenticity of leaflets warning villagers to evacuate ahead of an Iranian military offensive against Kurdish rebels.
    Hundreds of villagers have fled their homes in Iraq's mountainous northeast while others hid in caves after what local authorities said was days of intermittent shelling by Iran across the border.
    So far there has been no official comment from either Tehran or Baghdad about the shelling.
    Cross-border skirmishes occasionally occur as Iraq's neighbors Turkey and Iran combat Kurdish separatist rebels operating from bases in Iraq's mountainous and remote north and northeast.
    The government of Iraq's largely autonomous region of Kurdistan said it was investigating after villagers said they had seen the leaflets thrown from helicopters on Monday.

    I started another thread the other day how strange it was our troops are dying form Iraqi freedom. At the same time, while the Iranian government is our bitter enemy and helping kill our troops, the Iraqi and Iranian leaders seem to have a very comfortable relationship. There is something about this that does not add up.

    I have to wonder how we would respond is the leaflets are true?
