Iraqi border police seized a tanker that had just crossed from Iran filled with thousands of forged ballots, an official said. The tanker was seized by agents with the American-trained border protection force at the Iraqi town of Badra.The Iranian truck driver told the police under interrogation that at least three other trucks filled with ballots had crossed from Iran at different spots along the border.
The U.S. government has alleged that Iranian agents are deeply involved in trying to influence events in Iraq, by funneling money to Shiite political parties and by arming and training many of the illegal militias that are bedeviling the country.
Bombs from Iran
U.S. officials in Baghdad and Washington, along with their British counterparts, have contended that sophisticated bombs have been smuggled across the border from Iran, and that some of them have been used against U.S. and British soldiers
In what appears to be an escalation of rhetoric, posturing and war baiting, Iran continues to ratchet up the stakes as Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has stood by his latest attack on Israel and asserted the world was "on the verge of change".Iran's hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad launched a fresh attack against Israel, describing the Holocaust as a "myth" and saying the Jewish state should be moved to Europe or North America.
They have invented a myth that Jews were massacred and place this above God, religions and the prophets," the outspoken president said in a speech carried live on state television.

What is he doing? It's obvious to me. He is calling his fellow Jew haters out of the closet.
The Ahmadinejad Doctrine. Just as President Bush declared a "Bush Doctrine" stating plainly that there would be no distinction between terrorists and those who harbor them, Ahmadinejad is stating his judenrein plainly and telling the world you are either with him or against him. Basically, he is opening the door to all the jew hating closet dwellers to come out of the closet. Their day has come. No more shame. Just as Hitler did. And, if you recall, al large part of the world embraced Hitler for it (including Teddy "not to worry I can swim" Kennedy's father - Ambassador to England at the time).
So it will be. Whose side are you on?
UPDATE: Daily Star: Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei met the political supremo of Hamas on Tuesday and urged Palestinians to continue resistance against Israel and not bother negotiating. Khamenei's calls came a day after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reiterated his doubt about the Holocaust and called on Muslim nations to take a proactive stand on the Palestinian issue.
"The past 50 years' experience shows the situation will not be improved by giving into the Zionist regime and negotiating," Khamenei was quoted as saying by the official news agency IRNA.
Khamenei urged the Palestinian resistance groups to press on with their "jihad" now that the "U.S. has been defeated in the region," and said he hoped they would "throw the occupiers out of Jerusalem." Hat tip slo co loving

Says Iran a "Real Threat"
President Bush on Wednesday called Iran a "real threat" and lashed out at President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad over the country's nuclear program and calls for the destruction of Israel. "I called it [Iran] part of the 'axis of evil' for a reason," Bush told Fox News in an interview. "I'm concerned about a theocracy that has got little transparency, a country whose president has declared the destruction of Israel as part of their foreign policy, and a country that will not listen to the demands of the free world to get rid of its ambitions to have a nuclear weapon."
