BREAKING NEWS 6/5/10 - Iran Invades Iraq and Occupies Iraqi Town
Based on reliable sources Iran has invaded Iraq and is now occupying an Iraqi town in the northern part of the country. The Associated Press and the Washington Post are reporting this now.
As pressure mounts with Israel and Hamas it seems that Iran is now attempting to put a second front on this dispute. President Obama promised to get U.S. troops out of Iraq this year. Now, with this new invasion will he cut and run or will he stay and defend this fledgling democracy? I have included the AP article below.
There is no doubt that Iran wants Iraq’s oil fields and is patiently waiting for the U.S. to leave this year. This move is no surprise to most Middle East experts. Iran is now in the processes of testing this inexperienced President far beyond anything he could have ever imagined.
Iraqi official says Iranian troops cross border
(AP) – 2 hours ago
BAGHDAD — A senior Kurdish official in northern Iraq says Iranian troops have crossed the Iraqi border in pursuit of Iranian Kurdish rebels.
Jabar Yawar, a deputy minister in the Kurdish autonomous region in northern Iraq, said Saturday that 35 Iranian soldiers remain in the Iraqi village of Perdunaz after crossing the border last Thursday.
Yawar said the Iranian troops have ventured about a mile (1.6 kilometers) into Iraq. Perdunaz is an Iraqi border town east of the Kurdish capital of Irbil.
He said Iranian troops have been shelling the region for days in pursuit of a Kurdish rebel group known as the Party for Free Life in Kurdistan, or PEJAK. Iran has previously targeted the border areas in pursuit of PEJAK fighters
