AFP: Iran employs 32000 agents in Iraq

President Bush’s newly announced “kill or capture” policy with regards to Iranian operatives in Iraq will yield a significant number of potential targets, according to the main exiled Iranian opposition group.

Agence France Presse, Berlin – The main exiled Iranian opposition group published a list of nearly 32,000 Iraqis who it said were “agents of the mullahs” employed by Iran to destabilize its neighbor.

At a news conference in Berlin, the spokesman of the German chapter of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), Javad Dabiran, also accused the Islamic republic of “sending millions of dollars in cash to Iraq each month” as well as arms.

Dabiran said the agents were employed by the Qods force, which is affiliated with Iran’s elite ideological army, the Revolutionary Guards.

He said the NCRI had obtained the list of 31,690 members, which only included people “directly enlisted by the Qods force in Iran”.

The document includes the name of each fighter in Arabic and Farsi, his bank account number and the amount he received in each month in rials, Dabiran said


Although the previous “catch and release” policy was replaced with the current aggressive strategy last fall, we are only finding out about it in today’s news reports.

Also, an update in an unrelated story, The Kerbala attack. Omar at Iraq the Model suspects that this may have been an inside job, which points the finger at al Sadr and his Iranian puppeteers. (h/t n2l)

Canadian Muslim MP not Muslim enough for islamists

Canadian Muslim organizations criticized a Muslim legislator for a fact-finding mission to Israel that he undertook at the prime minister’s request.

The leaders of the Canadian Arab Federation and the Canadian Islamic Congress issued a joint statement mocking the competence of Wajid Khan — a former pilot in the Pakistan Air Force and presently a member of Canada’s Parliament — and demanding his resignation.


Totonto Globe and Mail suggests that Khan’s refusal to meet Hamas and Hezbollah representatives during his trip might also have caused the onset of this most recent episode of Islamist seething and complaining, although Muslim activists have rarely if ever needed a reason to justify their seething and complaining.

Colts Jinx: Belgium Bans 18 and 88


A bad omen for Peyton Manning and the Colts: from Brussels Journal…..

“Patrick Dewael, the Belgian minister of the Interior, has forbidden the wearing of football shirts displaying the numbers 18 and 88. According to the Liberal minister the number 18 stands for “Adolf Hitler” and the number 88 for “Heil Hitler.” A is the 1st letter of the alphabet, H the 8th.”

Question– If Peyton Manning goes ahead and wears this offensive jersey number, does that mean he is a Nazi?

If Colts fans cheer for Manning while he wears the offensive jersey number, then does this mean Colts fans are Nazis?

My prediction: Jinx, Schminx — Bear 28, Colts 12.

Troops Died After, Not In, Sneak Attack

Last week, we learned that several US security contractors had been shot execution-style after their helo crashed north of Bagdhad. Now, details are emerging that the commando raid south of Bagdhad, in Karbala by insurgents using American vehicles, and wearing American uniforms captured and murdered US soldiers as far away as 25 miles from Karbala.

As of yet, Amnesty International, the EU, and the Democrat Party have not condemned the insurgents for violating the Geneva conventions.

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) – Contrary to U.S. military statements, four U.S. soldiers did not die repelling a sneak attack at the governor’s office in the Shiite holy city of Karbala last week. New information obtained by The Associated Press shows they were abducted and found dead or dying as far as 25 miles away.

The brazen assault 50 miles south of Baghdad was launched Jan. 20 by a group of nine to 12 militants. They traveled in black GMC Suburban vehicles – the type used by U.S. government convoys, had American weapons, wore new U.S. military combat fatigues and spoke English.

In a written statement, the U.S. command reported at the time that five soldiers were killed while “repelling the attack.” Two senior U.S. military officials as well as Iraqi officials now say three of them were found dead and one mortally wounded in locations as far as 25 miles east of the governor’s office.

Liberal AM radio fails to pay its own way in Santa Cruz


marxism.gifSANTA CRUZ — Al Franken, Randi Rhodes and Sam Seeder — articulate liberal pundits — don’t sell well, even in Santa Cruz.

The trio are part of the nationally syndicated Air America, which was dropped from Santa Cruz radio station KOMY 1340 AM on Thursday and replaced with music from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s.

The left-leaning radio network, aimed at taking on Rush Limbaugh and other conservative talk shows, debuted on Central Coast airwaves in July 2005, but local advertisers never bought in, station owner Michael Zwerling said.

“We didn’t sell a single ad in a year and a half,” Zwerling said Thursday. “I thought liberal radio would work as a viable advertising business in the most liberal town in America. I was wrong”


It probably never occurred to these economic Einsteins that to have a successful sales force, there should be incentive-based compensation (i.e. commissions). A motivated and compensated sales force can sell the proverbial ice cubes to Eskimos.

Liberals don’t like the concept of commissioned sales. They think it is not fair. Those who can’t make sales end up making next to nothing. Those who can close the sale make a handsome living. Both will work long, hard hours, but only the one who gets results gets paid.

Buh-bye Air America.
