In Iraq, you've got Iran's Shia routing the Sunnis with our troops stuck in the middle and no plan to get out. The Shias will win this battle hands down, and will control central and southern Iraq and the oil, it's just a matter of time.
In Gaza, the Hamas/Iran vs. US/Fatah final battle has ended, and the US's Fatah has lost, Iran's Hamas has won. Next they'll take the West Bank.
Then comes Lebanon, where Iran's funded, trained and armed Hezbollah will soon enough destroy the US's Lebanese government. That won't even be a contest, and it's gonna start in days. How do I know?
Because Iran's President told us EXACTLY what he was going to do a few days ago, and now he's doing it. Amazing. He also said Israel would be destroyed. And then the hidden imam reappears.
There may come a time very soon where the world wished it had taken him more seriously, and where investors all over the world wish they had been more liquid and less extended.
GAZA CITY In Gaza, it was a day of major victories for Hamas and its backers in Iran and Syria and of devastating setbacks for the Western-backed Fatah. In one particularly humiliating scene, masked Hamas fighters marched agents of the once-feared Preventive Security Service out of their headquarters, arms raised in the air, stripped to the waist and ducking at the sound of a gunshot.
In recent months the US, with Israel's agreement, had sought to use Dahlan as a counterweight against Hamas, funnelling him weapons, money and men. The plan has disastrously backfired
BAGHDAD - A handful of Sunni mosques were attacked or burned Thursday, but curfews and increased troop levels kept Iraq in relative calm a day after suspected al-Qaida bombers toppled the towering minarets of a prized Shiite shrine.
Wednesday's attack on the Askariya shrine in Samarra, which was blamed on Sunni extremists with links to al-Qaida, stoked fears of a surge in violence between Muslim sects. A bombing at the same mosque complex in February 2006 that destroyed the shrine's famed golden dome
BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - A bomb ripped through a vocal anti-Syrian lawmaker's car near the popular waterfront in the Lebanese capital Wednesday, killing him and nine other people in the latest assassination of a Lebanese opponent of Damascus.
The blast, a new blow to the stability of this conflict-torn nation, comes days after the government began putting together an international tribunal ordered by the United Nations to try suspects in the killing of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in Beirut two years ago - a move strongly opposed by Syria and its allies in Lebanon.
TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran's president said on Sunday the Lebanese and the Palestinians had pressed a "countdown button" to bring an end to Israel.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who triggered outrage in the West two years ago when he said Israel should be "wiped off the map", has often referred to the destruction of the Jewish state but says Iran is not a threat.
"With God's help, the countdown button for the destruction of the Zionist regime has been pushed by the hands of the children of Lebanon and Palestine," Ahmadinejad said in a speech.
