    The most senior US general in Iraq has said he has evidence that Iran was behind Sunday's bombardment of Baghdad's heavily fortified Green Zone.
    Gen David Petraeus told the BBC he thought Tehran had trained, equipped and funded insurgents who fired the barrage of mortars and rockets.

    He said Iran was adding what he described as "lethal accelerants" to a very combustible mix.

    There has as yet been no response from Iran to the accusations.

    M.Alsaders Mufftie militia need no help in this area, their perfectly capable on their own. Any help from the Iranians would be in the form of supplies. How about this. Alsaders cease fire thats been going on for a year is starting to unravel.

    Iran's been involved for a long time. Why the sudden interest?

    And btw--the Hessians didn't exactly "help", they were mercenaries under contract. If the US had had the ability to pay, they'd have "helped" the US.
