Mithaq missiles handed over to Sadrists!!

Reader comment on item: Hugging Iraq's Leaders
in response to reader comment: Question for Mr Daniel Pipes: Is an immediate US military pullout from Iraq advisable ?

Like I forcasted in previous comments, the more pressure Britain and USA push on Iran for its Nuke program, the more casualties will happen to their forces in Iraq and to some extent Afghanistan. Today a British Helicopter was dawned in Basura killing 4 crew and an other US one downed in Afghanistan killing 10. If Iran already handed the anti-plane shoulder carried missiles to the Sadrists and to the Hikmatyarists (followers of Gulb-dine Hikmatyar who was allowed refuge in Iran after Taliban took over and unlocalized now)..I think the coalition of Costa Rica will have the same fate like the former USSR in Afghanistan. Again, may be by lowering pressure on Iran Nuke program, things will cool down very soon...
