This is what we used to call “An act of War”
Iran is paying Taliban fighters $1,000 for each U.S. soldier they kill in Afghanistan, according to a report in a British newspaper.
The Sunday Times described how a man it said was a “Taliban treasurer” had gone to collect $18,000 from an Iranian firm in Kabul, a reward it said was for an attack in July which killed several Afghan government troops and destroyed an American armored vehicle.
The treasurer left with the cash hidden in a sack of flour, the newspaper said, and then gave it to Taliban fighters in the province of Wardak. In the past six months, the treasurer claimed to have collected more than $77,000 from the company.
While the south was seceding and President Buchannan dithered the cry of unionists was: “Oh but for one hour of (Andrew) Jackson”. When I read this knowing my president; my cry is “Oh but for one hour of Teddy Roosevelt, Harry Truman or Ronald Reagan”!
If this isn’t a causis belli to at least take out the Iranian Nukes I’d like to know what is!
