Iran masses troops along Iraq border

Cross posted from Right Truth

Kuwait News Agency is reporting that Iran is massing troops along its borders with north Iraq. Iran announced new tests of short-range missiles and more military exercises.

A Pishmerga source said that Iran has beefed up its troops stationed along the main border crossing (Pashmakh), midway between the Kurdish Penjavin city and the Iranian Miriwan city.

He added that Iran sent more reinforcement troops to the Kirban border position with Iraq, between Daza castle north of Suleymania.

Also the Iranian border authorities are applying a lot of pressure on businessmen at the border crossing and tightening the inspection process there. (source)

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad denied that the country’s economy has been hurt by U.N. sanctions. Well of course he denies it. But he can’t deny this: A second air craft carrier, the USS John C. Stennis, will arrive in waters off Iran in the next few weeks. The clerics are apparently worried that the United States plans to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities in the next few months. Fear is good.

Last year, Iran held three large-scale military exercises to test what it called an “ultra-horizon” missile and the Fajr-3, a rocket that it claims can evade radar and use multiple warheads to hit several targets simultaneously.

Though U.S. officials suggest Iran exaggerates its military capabilities, Washington is very concerned about Iranian progress in developing missiles. Some of its missiles are capable of hitting U.S.-allied Arab nations and Israel, which Ahmadinejad has called to be wiped off the map. (source)

Oh Mahmoud, I do believe your days are numbered. Your own clerics and your own people are turning against you. Bub Bye you little polyester wearing weasel.
