Long Past Time

From the trembling quislings at The Washington Post:

President Bush has authorized the U.S. military to kill or capture Iranian agents active inside Iraq, The Washington Post reported on Friday, citing government and counterterrorism officials with direct knowledge of the plan.

What the hell have we been waiting for? Especially based on this information:

....for three years, the Iranians have operated an embedding program there, offering operational training, intelligence and weaponry to several Shiite militias connected to the Iraqi government, to the insurgency and to the violence against Sunni factions . Gen. Michael V. Hayden, the director of the CIA, told the Senate recently that the amount of Iranian-supplied materiel used against U.S. troops in Iraq "has been quite striking."

Wonder how many American soldiers have unnecessarily died because we've been playing patty-cake with a regime that has been at war with us since 1979?

Of course, we must have some fear and doubt:

The wide-ranging plan has several influential skeptics in the intelligence community, at the State Department and at the Defense Department who said that they worry it could push the growing conflict between Tehran and Washington into the center of a chaotic Iraq war.
....if Iran responds with escalation, it has the means to put U.S. citizens and national interests at greater risk in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

Yes, and the military engagement of Japan after their attack on Pearl Harbor increased the amount of kamikazee attacks worldwide...should we have hid under our blankets instead? How many times does Iran get to kick our shins before we decide to break their nose?

And listen to this little list of charges against Iran, from America's top foreign service office at State, a department normally acting as the home base of political appeasers, Arabists, and other assorted bootlickers:

R. Nicholas Burns, the undersecretary of state for political affairs, said in an interview in late October that the United States knows that Iran "is providing support to Hezbollah and Hamas and supporting insurgent groups in Iraq that have posed a problem for our military forces." He added: "In addition to the nuclear issue, Iran's support for terrorism is high up on our agenda."

Let's go get 'em, boys.
Oh, and Harry Reid? Go f*ck yourself.
