How about another incident in Iraq from August:

Coalition Forces captured a weapons smuggler and Special Groups extremist leader before dawn Monday near Qasirin, north of Baghdad.

Coalition Forces conducted a raid targeting this known weapons distributor and Special Groups leader. The captured weapons facilitator was responsible for the storage and distribution of Iranian weapons. Coalition Forces intelligence suggests the weapons facilitator has traveled to and from Iran numerous times and is responsible for smuggling and distributing deadly explosively formed penetrators (EFPs). The target was also responsible for the distribution of those weapons to Special Groups operating throughout the Baghdad area and was connected to a very large network of weapons facilitators and Special Groups associates.

The weapons smuggler is believed to have had ties to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps-Quds Force.

While on the objective, armed gunmen, suspected to be extremist militants, began gathering and maneuvering against Coalition Forces. Coalition Forces were fired upon from multiple directions with sustained small arms fire. Coalition Forces returned fire, killing eight gunmen.

Two others detained during the raid are also suspected of distributing weapons smuggled into Iraq from Iran. One of the buildings searched during the raid produced several AK-47s, ammunition, grenades, a large sum of currency, identification cards and questionable documents, which were all confiscated for analysis and evaluation **** Oh wait, yet another one from August:

During the course of the operation, the assault force and the overhead aerial support observed a vehicle and large group of armed men on foot attempting an assault on the ground forces. Responding appropriately to the threat of the organized terrorist force, close air support was called and engaged the terrorist vehicle and organized terrorist force, killing an estimated 30 terrorists.

Building upon a series of coordinated operations efforts that began with the raid in al Amarah in June, Coalition Forces continue to attack the supply chain of illicit materials being shipped from Iran. Intelligence reports indicate that the targeted individual in last night’s raid acts as a proxy between the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force and the Iraqi EFP network. Reports also indicate that he assists with the facilitation of weapons and EFP shipments into Iraq as well as the transfer of militant extremists to Iran for training.

ANywo.. Perhaps it is just for security concern on the part of Iran. If I saw the guy in the street, I'd probably kick him in the the sack a few times.

Obviously you missed the point and the joke. I was busting on Bush for being in bed with the Saudi's who disallow the signs and books of Christianity and Judiasm, and where 17 of 18 9-11 hijackers are from, and operate the madrasses where kids only learn the Koran and learn to hate every other person of a different religious belief, and most importantly are a Monarchy. Then Bush thinks it is a great idea to try and turn Iraq into a democratic muslim nation in the middle east.
Why not invade Saudi Arabia and instill democracy there?

this maybe the case down the road, only when half of europe falls to the islamist, and the United States is beseiged with suicide bombers like the Israels.

The only way I see this taking place would be in another generation or so. When the hippies die off, and the rest of the population is mugged by reality.
