Are Iranian Agents Trying To Destabilize Iraq?

Published by at 2:42 pm under Bin Laden/GWOT,Iran,Iraq

A pattern is emerging here, where the worse things get in Iran the more bombs go off in Iraq:

At least 55 people have been killed by a bomb blast in the eastern Sadr City area of Baghdad, say officials.

Iraqi police said the bomb went off in a market place in the predominantly Shia area of the Iraqi capital.

At least 104 people were also reported to have been injured in the blast, one of the worst in Iraq this year.

It comes less than a week before US soldiers pull out of all Iraqi cities in advance of a complete withdrawal by the end of 2011.

There has been a recent rise in violence in Iraq, which, correspondents say, shows insurgents are intent on making the country’s security situation appear unstable as the US withdrawal deadline approaches.

On Monday, at least 29 people were killed in attacks in Baghdad and elsewhere.

Muslims killing Muslims again. Things must be on the edge of collapse in Iran if they think bombing Arab Muslims in Iraq will save the Iranian Regime from annihilation.  No surprise these bombings seem to originate in areas that were Mahdi Army strongholds, where the Mahdi were the Iranian backed thugs out killing Iraqis in an attempt to force the US to withdrawal in 2007.

All I can say is the Muslim Street is getting another brutal wake up call on what life is like under the jack boot of Islamo Fascists.

    Why would you assume this bombing is related to Iran? Nothing in the article you cited or anything else I’ve read has even suggested a tie between the uprising in Iran and bombings in Iraq. Violence and bombing attacks have been steadily increasing as we near the date for our troops to pull out of the cities – the article you cited even mentions this fact. That seems to be the obvious explanation. Why would Iran bomb a predominately Shia area of Iraq? And don’t you think that the Iranian leadership has enough to worry about domestically that they don’t likely have time to plan elaborate bombings in Iraq? It makes no sense.

    Sadly, the increasing violence in Iraq is likely an indication of what many in this country have known for a long time (and I have repeatedly stated on your blog) – the Surge did not produce long-term stability in Iraq because there still has been no political or economic reconciliation. I fear that the security gains will only last as long as the US military is in charge of security. The potential for violence will only increase as we pull out of Iraq. Hopefully the Iraqi government and military is strong enough to withstand this next phase.

    And as the situation deteriorates, the country gets to watch all of those GOPers and conservatives that declared Iraq a success long ago try and blame it all on Obama who is simply implementing the security agreement Bush signed with Iraq shortly before he left office.

    I am coming to see that barack obama, et al are absolutely incapable of adjusting strategies as the enemy adapts….

    The correct statement will be that he will BLAME IT ALL ON BUSH. Now that’s a fact.

    Is Bush still the president or what? sarc off

    This is total BS. If you follow it closely there has been no sustained significant increase of violence in months. Every time a couple of bombs go off in the same week anti-American fanatics like yourself start celebrating hoping that everything falls apart and then Iraq is quickly forgotten about again.

    AJ’s right. Unstable regimes frequently try adventures abroad as a diversion from internal troubles. Don’t be surprised to see Iran attack Iraq, the Gulf States, or American forces in CENTCOM.
