The Agence France-Presse reports that Iranian Revolutionary Guard forces have crossed the border into Iraq:
Iranian Revolutionary Guard forces have been spotted by British troops crossing the border into southern Iraq, The Sun tabloid reported on Tuesday.
Britain’s defence ministry would not confirm or deny the report, with a spokesman declining to comment on “intelligence matters”.
An unidentified intelligence source told the tabloid: “It is an extremely alarming development and raises the stakes considerably. In effect, it means we are in a full on war with Iran — but nobody has officially declared it.”
Obviously, if this report is true, it raises the stakes considerably for America’s involvement in Iraq. It raises the stakes even higher for Iran.
Pray for peace.
