American commandos in Iran

US Special Forces

The BBC reports a disturbing piece on possible American special forces already inside Iran. Excerpt:

The American investigative journalist Seymour Hersh has claimed that US commandos are operating inside Iran selecting sites for future air strikes.

In the latest edition of the New Yorker, Hersh says intelligence officials have revealed that Iran is the US' "next strategic target".

Hersh says that American special forces have conducted reconnaissance missions inside Iran for six months.

Potential targets include nuclear sites and missile installations, he says.

They have been aided by information from the government of Pakistan, Hersh adds.

He reports as well that American special forces units have been authorised to conduct covert operations in as many as 10 nations in the Middle East and South Asia.

If this is true this is VERY disturbing news. If Amercian's think that Iraq is hell, wait until they get a taste of Iran.

In contrast to Iraq, Iran has an army 100% loyal to their leadership. A lot of them also have 8 years battle experience from the Iran-Iraq War. Also another crucial point is that Iran hasn't been crippled by 12 years of sanctions.

If the Americans dare attack Iran the Shia's in Iraq won't be too happy either. Neither will Muslims the whole world over. I REALLY hope this isn't true, and that someone stops Bush and his cronies before they can do something like this and further push the world into chaos.
