Kevin Drum recently wrote about making an attempt at diplomacy in Iraq, stating "it's never been obvious to me that Iraq's neighbors -- primarily Iran and Saudi Arabia -- have enough influence to stop the violence in Baghdad even if they were fully committed to trying."

Well, if this NY Post story is to be believed (a big "if"), which lays out how Iran is actively supporting the insurgents, call me overly cynical but I don't think we can count on Iran to help put a halt to the mayhem.

Israel for one is not buying it as they have reportedly already drawn up plans to destroy Iran's uranium enrichment facilities. Combined with GW's escalation (surge), look for this region to erupt in the next several months.
