    An Iranian-American citizen has pleaded guilty to plotting with the Iranian military to kill the Saudi ambassador to the United States.
    Manssor Arbabsiar, 58, entered the guilty plea in federal court in New York.

    Excerpts :
    ....The defendant, Mansour J. Arbabsiar, a used-car salesman from Texas, had been accused of conspiring to hire assassins from a Mexican drug cartel for $1.5 million to kill the Saudi ambassador to US, Adel al-Jubeir....

    ....In response to questions from the judge and a prosecutor, Mr. Arbabsiar admitted to his role in the plot, which he said had involved Iranian military officials....

    That is grounds for war. Violation of diplomats is barbaric policy, removes any restrictions in treating Iran in any civialized manner.

    Yeah, any excuse will do.

    With the US debt hovering around fifteen trillion dollars, the last thing the US needs is another war; and Iran is not Haiti.
