Inside the Ring
Question of the Day
Army Brig. Gen. Kevin J. Bergner, chief spokesman for Multi-National Force-Iraq, revealed this week the extensive Iranian government involvement in arming terrorists in Iraq through Lebanese Hezbollah proxies.
“The reality of this is they’re not only killing American forces, they’re killing Iraqis, they’re killing Iraqi security forces, and they are disrupting the stability in Iraq, and it’s a concern for the government of Iraq, for the Iraqi forces and the Iraqi people, that they would expect their neighbor to play a more helpful and less damaging role in their country,” Gen. Bergner told reporters.
Shahin Gobadi of the National Council of Resistance of Iran said at least six Qods Force terrorists are based at the Iranian Embassy in Baghdad. The group also identified three IRGC camps training Iraqi terrorists near Tehran.
The council is viewed by the State Department as a front for the People’s Mujahedin of Iran, a Marxist, nationalist and Islamist group that was listed as a terrorist organization because of its attacks on Iran. The council, however, provided the credible information in 2002 on Iran’s illicit nuclear-arms program.
The six Qods Force terrorists are working with Iran’s ambassador to Iraq, Hassan Kazemi Qomi, and are posing as “consultants” to the ambassador, he said. They are involved in supervising the shipment of weapons and ammunition, including deadly shaped-charge penetrating bombs, Mr. Gobadi said. Other arms being smuggled in to the Iraqi terrorists are mortars, shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles, anti-tank rockets and sniper rifles, he said.
The opposition group also has identified Qods Force bases near the Iran-Iraq border, and said the Iranian Embassy and Qods Force terrorists are linked to the Shi’ite Badr Brigade death squads in Iraq. The Qods Force leaders are using diplomatic cover to work with pro-Iranian political parties in Iraq.
Gen. Bergner said Monday that the Iranian paramilitary Qods Force has been supporting terrorists engaged in bombings, kidnappings, extortion, sectarian slayings, illegal arms trafficking and other attacks against Iraqi citizens, police, army and coalition forces and that Iranians are spending $750,000 to $3 million a month to back the insurgents.
China’s missile sub
Google Earth commercial satellite imagery has provided the second published photo of China’s newest ballistic-missile submarine, labeled the Jin-class by the Pentagon and Type 094 by the Chinese.
The photo shows the new submarine moored at the Xiaopingdao submarine base south of Dalian, about 193 miles north of Qingdao on China’s coast. It was first disclosed yesterday by the Federation of American Scientists.
The satellite photo confirms the features of the new submarine that were revealed in a photo first posted on a Chinese Web site in August.
