So...we better go and bomb Iran then. I mean, they need to get their shit together to live up to the lies the Bush administration is dishing out in order to justify another illegal invasion.
According to this Reuters article, which was based on this New York Times article, which details documents found at a September insurgent hideout raid that listed the names and origins of 700 foreign fighters:
Of 700 foreign militants who entered Iraq since August 2006:
- 305, or 41 percent, were from Saudi Arabia
- 137, or 18 percent, were Libyan
- Yemenis were the third largest group
- Syrians made up 8 percent
So, the Iraqi insurgency is made up of men from countries that are, um, our allies.
