Silver linings involving al Qaeda
Posted by: McQ on Monday, July 09, 2007

Bet you never thought to see a title like that, but every now and then such things occur. Al Qaeda, not sufficiently pleased to be at war with everyone in Iraq is now threatening to go to war with Iran:
Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, who leads the group Islamic State in Iraq , said his Sunni fighters have been preparing for four years to wage a battle against Shiite-dominated Iran.

"We are giving the Persians, and especially the rulers of Iran, a two-month period to end all kinds of support for the Iraqi Shiite government and to stop direct and indirect intervention ... otherwise a severe war is waiting for you," he said in the 50-minute audiotape released Sunday. The tape, which could not be independently verified, was posted on a Web site commonly used by insurgent groups.
There's even a funny part to this:
Iraq's Shiite-led government is backed by the U.S. but closely allied to Iran. The United States accuses Iran of arming and financing Shiite militias in Iraq — charges Tehran denies.
So for months we've been pretending like the mullahs who run Iran really don't know about what is going on. Apparently al Qaeda Iraq has no such qualms about calling creatures who walk like a duck and quack like a duck, ducks.

The warning has been issued:
In the recording, al-Baghdadi also gave Sunnis and Arab countries doing business in Iran or with Iranians a two-month deadline to cease their ties.

"We advise and warn every Sunni businessman inside Iran or in Arab countries especially in the Gulf not to take partnership with any Shiite Iranian businessman — this is part of the two-month period," he said.
September 9th?

Let's see how this works out.
