    Can an entire nation be medicated? These Iranians clearly need some help.


    Iran's interior minister accused the United States on Saturday of orchestrating the kidnapping of nine Iranian border guards with the help of Sunni militant groups linked to the Taliban and al Qaeda, according to a report.

    "The United States, which cannot directly encounter Iran, uses such groups to carry out such acts against the country," Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi told reporters, according to state-run Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

    "Iran has launched a serious investigation into the kidnapping. The kidnappers are quite known. They have asked for ransom and release of jailed members of their group in exchange for the release of the border guards," the interior minister said. "We hope our sons can soon return to the country with the least harm."

    On Wednesday the Arabic-language network Al Arabiya aired video of what it said were soldiers who were kidnapped near Iran's border with Pakistan.

    The network read a statement reportedly made by a Sunni militant group, the Organization of God's Soldiers for Sunni Mujahedeen, threatening to kill the soldiers unless 16 imprisoned fellow militants are released.

    The authenticity of the video and the statement cannot be independently verified by CNN.

    Iran's government confirmed the soldiers were kidnapped and taken across the border into Pakistan.

    I find it highly likely that something like this is in fact happening.

    Like a much smaller version of russia helping out N vietnam in the vietnam war.

    Is this the same Iran that stormed the U.S. embassy in 1978 and held everyone hostage?

    They have realized BBC and the homey leftists are far more damaging than anything the Iranians can do by themselves.

    I suggest that within 10 days, 15 at the longest, Israel will take out the better part of Iran's nuclear facilities.

    There is a line in the sand regarding those critters as far as Israel is concerned. Iran crossed it last week by ramping up their nuclear ambitions, agreeing to meet with the Russians to purchase the latest MIGs, anti aircraft technology and new missiles, to say nothing about the ranting of the lunatic president of Iran.

    An Israeli general was asked a couple of days ago how far Israel was prepared to go to protect itself in view of this new threat. His reply: 2000 kilometers!

    It'd be a lot harder than their taking out Saddam's reactor in the 80's. From what I've read the Tranians learned from his mistake and have the facilities spread all over and with lots of collateral targets over and around them.
