This is a thinly veiled reference to Iranís connection to the bombing of the Golden Mosque as well as their other operations in Iraq. There have been two recent articles that indicate that the Iraqi government and its people are more than aware of Iranís doings in these matters and that there will be no civil war.

And we note as well Rumsfeldís warning to Iran at the bottom of the quotes
Iranian meddling in Iraqi affairs "is something they will look back on as being an error in judgment." I see in this that a decision has recently been made that Iraqi forces shall join in the attack against Iran to strip it of its radical government, its export of terrorism, and its nuclear program.

Rumsfeld says Tehran government sending military to destabilize Iraq

PENTAGON Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld says members of the Iranian military have been slipping into Iraq to make trouble.

Rumsfeld says there's been steady, detectable traffic of members of the military across the Iranian border to destabilize Iraq. He says "I doubt they're religious pilgrims" and he believes the activity is taking place with the blessing of the Tehran government.

Rumsfeld says, "I doubt members of the Revolutionary Guard move around willy-nilly." (He is saying that these infiltrators are Iraniam special forces units)

 

The solution would seem to be tightening up the border and increasing patrols there, but Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Peter Pace says that's an Iraqi job -- not one for Americans to handle on their own.

 

Rumsfeld did issue this warning -- he says Iranian meddling in Iraqi affairs "is something they will look back on as being an error in judgment."
