Hezbollah, under Iranian auspices, are training the Shiite Mahdi Army (seen above). How sweet and helpful of them. According to the New York Times article, Hezbollah Said to Help Shiite Army in Iraq:
…militia had sent 300 fighters to Lebanon, ostensibly to fight alongside Hezbollah….
American officials say the Iranians have also provided direct support to Shiite militias in Iraq, including explosives and trigger devices for roadside bombs, and training for several thousand fighters, mostly in Iran. The training is carried out by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and the Ministry of Intelligence and Security, they say.
Gee, great, now we have Shias with advanced bomb-making capabilities and battle tactics to kill
Aren’t you glad Bush “liberated” these guys?
