What Could Possibly Go Wrong? Iran Says It May Send Troops Into Pakistan, Afghanistan

I'm sure the Pakistanis would just love to see Iranian Revolutionary Guard troops funneling into their country and what about in Afghanistan?  What happens when American soldiers are confronted with Iranian troops inside of Pakistan?  Can we shoot the bastards?

The story comes from Times of India.

Iran says may send forces into Pakistan territory

TEHRAN: Tehran's interior minister has warned Pakistan that Iranian forces may enter Pakistani and Afghan territory to released border guards seized by a rebel group.

Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli's remarks on state TV come a week after the little-known Jaish al-Adl posted photos on Twitter of five men it claims are border guards it seized near Pakistan.

He said Iran had asked Pakistan to treat the case "strongly and seriously" or allow Iran to secure the remote region "deep on Afghanistan and Pakistan soil."

"Otherwise we do consider it our own right to intervene and create a new security sphere for our safety," he said.

Shoot the bastards?

Are you that blind? Believe it or not, in this instance, we are on the same side.

But I suppose your Iranophobia is getting in the way.

Iran seems to want to insert itself one way or another into most of teh countries in teh Middle easy from Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan , Iraq. All eh while causing trouble through their arming terror groups and paying for tehse proxy terror groups. Iran has ideas of expansion . Frankly The Paks will take a dim view of Iran's game of expansion at their expense, and iran may well learn the hard way how tough the paks can be. Saddam was a pussy . Iran can negotiate for their peoples freedom, Just as teh great satan did when Iran seized US personnel. THE Chihuahua is looking to make a big bite and may not be able to swallow it.
