    Iranian connections to al-Qaeda have long been debated, as many analysts have insisted that the rift between Sunnis and Shiites would prevent them from working together... but now the Obama administration says that radical Shiites can cooperate with radical Sunnis...

    LOL.

    This is a classic case of forging a casus belli.

    Bush made a fool of himself with his WMDs. Looks like Barry Obama hasn't learnt any lesson from his predecessor ... or is it the moment someone enters the White House loses part of his gray matter?

    Well I cannot reconcile to the fact that the report says radical Shias cooperate with radical Sunnis. You would believe that these fundoos will not see eye to eye more than the moderate ones.

    HAHAHA! How is that possible? Radical Shias and Sunnis would first attack and kill each other off before forging an alliance against NATO. This is seriously stupid.

    Stupid? So I guess Shiite Iran does not support, finance, train and arm Sunni Hamas?

    US "confirmed" Saddam Hussein's WMD and OBL being in Afghanistan before going to war. Yeah, good job US.

    Right on the head mate! BUt the bigger problem for the US in this kind of claims is integrity. The Bush WMD blunder for the 2003 Iraq invasion still prominently lingers in the minds of most people. But perhaps the Obama administration, running out of options., is signalling to Iran that it is now seriously considering armed intervention if it does not stop its nuclearization. How more to effectively send a message to Iran than rehash the scenario used by the previous administration in invading Iraq? what do you think?

    The U.S. government cares about integrity as much as Pakistan cares about religious tolerance.

    Nobody's claiming that the US government really cares so much about its integrity. I'm just saying that its integrity in this kind of matters has been severely damaged by Bush's WMD blunder. In international relations national interest trumps all other considerations.

    First time you've come out clean rather than spouting something about freedom and democracy.

    I like individual liberties as against Islamist and Marxist dominations. It doesn't mean to say I'm a blind fanboy of the US. I just admire a lot of American qualities that has helped our part of Asia a lot in the last 50 years. On the other hand I despise the rabid irrational anti-Americanism being championed by Islamists, quasi-Marxists, and cultist nations. They have a reflexive tendency of overblowing the mistakes of the US and trowing under he rags its favorable contributions.
