It came as no shock to learn that there is smoking gun evidence that Iran is supporting terrorism in Iraq.
"U.S. officials say they have found smoking-gun evidence of Iranian support for terrorists in Iraq: brand-new weapons fresh from Iranian factories. According to a senior defense official, coalition forces have recently seized Iranian-made weapons and munitions that bear manufacturing dates in 2006.
This suggests, say the sources, that the material is going directly from Iranian factories to Shia militias, rather than taking a roundabout path through the black market. "There is no way this could be done without (Iranian) government approval," says a senior official. "

Perhaps Nancy Pelosi is shocked but for the rest of us who do live in reality we realize what a threat Iran is and the last thing we want is to do is "talk" to them about helping us in Iraq. It is like a bad nightmare that this suggestion has ever even seen the light of day. Its like asking a pimp to help you with the prostitute problem on Portland street. Iran is a huge part of the problem so asking them for help is ludicrous.
Dick Morris points this out in his column entitled, Don't trade Iran for Iraq. Here is an excerpt:
"A consensus seems to be developing that only a "regional solution" embracing Iran and Syria can extract the United States from Iraq without jeopardy to those who have stood with us and without damage to both our reputation and Bush's place in history.
But at what price? Nobody seems willing to say what "engagement" with Iran for a regional solution would entail. We cannot ask Iran's help while we bomb its nuclear reactors or impose tough sanctions on the country.
But we must be sure not to accept the siren song, reportedly being pedaled by former Secretary of State James Baker, that we can have a regional solution by getting our two old friends, Iran and Syria, into the act. That way lies disaster!"
(Sidenote: Speaking of Iran and Syria I was very disappointed to read about Pastor Rick Warren's (author of Purpose Driven Life) recent visit to Syria where he describes Syria as a "moderate country". He is also hosting a conference today where he is having Barack Obama and several other questionable people there. He is starting to concern me.)
In conclusion I'm sure most of you have heard about Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's (aka Hitler Jr.) recent letter. Skye came up with a priceless response. Here is her letter:
"Dear hitler jr. Mr. Ahmadinejad,
Allow me to quote from two women of your own culture who posses a deeper understanding of peace and Islam than you will ever know:
“We will have peace with Islamofascists when they love their children more than they hate us"
Courage is not about being free of fear, Courage is the recognition that some things are more important than fear. One of the things that's more important than fear, to me, is justice.
Put more simply: Bite Me.
Love and Kisses,
P.S. God Bless the United States of America - God Bless President George Bush!"
