Iran Foments Civil War in Iraq Utilizing Hizballah

NY Times
reports that evidence has emerged indicating the extent of cooperation between the Mahdi Army in Iraq, Hezbollah and Iran,"Iran has facilitated the link between Hezbollah and the Shiite militias in Iraq, the official said. Syrian officials have also cooperated, though there is debate about whether it has the blessing of the senior leaders in Syria."

Moktada al-Sadr's forces have deployed to Lebanon in large numbers (1000-2000) for training with Hezbollah and Hezbollah has sent advisors to Iraq.

Again, this is illustrative of Iran fulfilling it's core ideological and hegemonic "manifest destiny". The Iranian regime’s constitution clearly states the need to “build an ideological army capable of expanding the sovereignty of the law of allah over the entire world.” To this end, the regime has used any means at its disposal, from supporting terrorist groups and religious extremism to interfering in regional countries’ internal affairs.

And our liberal/left chooses to minimize the threat of militant Islam as a figment of Islamophobe's or neocon's imagination. And when one decides to report undeniable facts and events, all sorts of name calling ensues from being a neocon to being inhumane, Islamophobe, warmonger, etc.
