The Big Joke : The Divine Punishment according to Red Shark of Iran

In Washington, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates, speaking at the briefing with Pace, said that he expected mortar and rocket attacks to intensify through September, when a critical evaluation by U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker and ground commander Gen. David H. Petraeus is to be submitted to Congress.The attacks in Baghdad come from both Shiite Muslim and Sunni Arab areas, but are thought to originate more frequently from districts considered strongholds of Shiite militants. The Americans have repeatedly accused Iran of arming Shiite extremists in Iraq.
In Tehran on Friday, former Iranian President Hashemi Rafsanjani said the difficulties the U.S. was facing in Iraq were and drew parallels between America's experience with Russia's invasion of Afghanistan nearly three decades ago."Now we see that God has taken revenge on the U.S. government, and their soldiers are killed every day and the U.S. Army has become stuck in the quagmire of Iraq, as the Soviets in Afghanistan and Americans in Vietnam," Rafsanjani, who is also a cleric, said in his Friday prayer sermon. "Now Americans are looking for a face-saving way to withdraw from Iraq to avoid the disgraceful withdrawal from Vietnam and defeat of Soviet forces in Afghanistan, which led to the further collapse of the whole Soviet Union," he said.Meanwhile, the U.S. military said a reputed leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq had surrendered Friday to U.S. forces and Iraqi troops at the Baghdad airport. The man was blamed for car bombings and mortar attacks in west Baghdad and in trouble spots such as Mahmoudiya, south of the capital, the military said, but gave no further information.
