Iranian Rockets Captured by Israel Identical to Rockets Fired At U.S. Bases in Iraq

107mm rockets of recent Iranian manufacture are among the 500 tons of ordnance recovered by the Israeli Navy, and the rockets they recovered precisely matched those captured outside of U.S FOB Hammer in July of 2007.

And in case you are wondering, yes, those same rockets are still being used, and are still killing American soldiers today.

An American logistics contractor known to readers of this blog as "Big Country" says via email that those same rockets are still being used against American bases:

...between the hours of 2000 and 2200 (8pm to 10pm) drop, yep you guessed it, 107mm rockets on us. Some days they don't drop at all, which is even worse. The waiting ya know? The largest number was 6 in short order, and the lowest was a single one. Guess it depends on how confident they are about getting caught. One of them KIA'd a guy on the pad across from me a few weeks backů 4 WIA, 1 KIA. (That one made FOXnews and CNN) I'm getting my intel firsthand on this, (it's pretty common knowledge on post) and the Army is fully aware of the whole thing, but whether or not it helps, I dunno... wheels within wheels as they say. I hope they put the zap these jokers soon.

Will President Obama man-up and stop Iran from supplying weapons being used against our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, and against our allies and national interests? Or will he continue to pretend these weapons are not being used against Americans, so he can play at gutless diplomacy?

Somehow, I think we all know the answer.

I remember when Jack Cafferty on CNN said that he sees no problem with this.

Seems to me that we did the same thing when the USSR had their Afghani misadventure. Soviets couldn't do anything about it then and I'm not sure there's much that we can do now, even if we did have something more substantial than the current Pretender-in-Chief in the Oval Office. Certainly the Iranians have shown little fear of us and next to none for D'Ohbama...

If I were in charge, I would send boomer to that part of the world, Let the Iranians know it was there and then give them an ultimatum. Desist or ceast to exist.

I know we dont like it when they are aimed at us. Fact is Iran has just joined the arms game. US, China, Russia, France, Iran and others make weapons for export. There has been times when our soldiers were being shot at with US made arms.

The point is, whether it is Iranian Shia or Al Queda Sunni or Syrian Baathists or Palestinian anti-zionists or Paki talibanophiles... all these distinctions give way to their common aim to wage what we may properly call Jihad. Sure, if they didn't have us or the Brits around to shoot at they would turn on each other; each claiming the next to be kaffir, they WILL work in common cause to blow up american GIs or civilians. The Lockerbie bomber is as much a hero to our domestic jihadists as he is to Bashar Assad, the Saddam-style secularist. This is the Unified Field Theory of Jihad and is what Bush Meant To Say when he coined the less inflammatory and less accurate GWOT.
