I'm not sure what to make of this story in the New York Times claiming that Hezbollah is training Iraqi militants in Iran, but it is unsettling given recent developments. I stand by my belief that Cheney, Bush & Co. still have something up their sleeve. And, no, you cannot use logic to predict the actions of people for who logic is meaningless.
A dear friend of mine just left to return home to Tehran after a visit. She said the increased sanctions, including enhanced financial sanctions are hurting Iranians. One family member had a large sum of money seized in a wire transfer to the U.S. The reason for the transfer? To pay down the mortgage on their home in California, which they may now lose. I know I feel safer.
