We need regime change in Iran...

More evidence that Iran is supporting the insurgency in Iraq...

Earlier this week, the U.S. military made public new and disturbing information about the proxy war that Iran is waging against American soldiers and our allies in Iraq.

According to Brig. Gen. Kevin Bergner, the U.S. military spokesman in Baghdad, the Iranian government has been using the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah to train and organize Iraqi extremists, who are responsible in turn for the murder of American service members.

Gen. Bergner also revealed that the Quds Force--a special unit of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps whose mission is to finance, arm and equip foreign Islamist terrorist movements--has taken groups of up to 60 Iraqi insurgents at a time and brought them to three camps near Tehran, where they have received instruction in the use of mortars, rockets, improvised explosive devices and other deadly tools of guerrilla warfare that they use against our troops. Iran has also funded its Iraqi proxies generously, to the tune of $3 million a month.

Based on the interrogation of captured extremist leaders--including a 24-year veteran of Hezbollah, apparently dispatched to Iraq by his patrons in Tehran--Gen. Bergner also reported on Monday that the U.S. military has concluded that "the senior leadership" in Iran is aware of these terrorist activities. He said it is "hard to imagine" Ayatollah Ali Khamenei--Iran's supreme leader--does not know of them.

Iran is using proxies in its war with the West. Obviously, the use of proxies must be okay to effect regime change in Iran. Of course, try telling that to all the left-wing, anti-US political hemophiliacs.

Cant invade Iran - not enough resources to keep it. They are tied up keeping Iraq stable. Iran is bigger, and has even more anti-west sentiment than Iraq.

Iraq is holding stable but with a lot of fighting still. Iran would be far worse.

The US cannot set up a new regime there. The only thing they could do is bomb the current government back to the stone age. While this would solve the Iran threat, the rush of refugees would further destableise Iraq and Afganistan - not to mention the political difficulties of deliberatly reducing a country to anarchy.

Bush just might be desperate enough to try it - he has less than two years as president, and he is determined to leave his mark on history - but even the commander in chief cant give an order like that without congressional approval. And thats not going to happen - even his own party would refuse to even consider it.
