Occupation Iraq: Iran Attacks Over Security Pact

Yeah, the MSM and government had been laying off this agenda for a while.

Strange how JUST AFTER the SECURITY PACT is approved, we get an "Iranian-made" rocket landing in the Green Zone.

You get tired of the "very convenient, if not outright uncanny" timing of all this stuff, be it any war front (Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Palestine).

And CUI BONO? WHOSE AGENDA is being advanced through the Zionist-controlled filter called AmeriKan news?

"Rocket attack near UN compound in Iraq kills 2

BAGHDAD (AP) — An Iranian-made rocket exploded Saturday near a U.N. compound in Baghdad's heavily fortified Green Zone, killing two foreign catering employees and wounding 15 others, according to U.N. and military officials.

The attack comes as followers of anti-U.S. Muqtada al-Sadr hoisted black flags on houses, mosques and Sadrist offices in their Baghdad stronghold to protest a U.S.-Iraqi security pact that would let American forces stay in Iraq for three years.

The rocket fell near the compound about 6:15 a.m., the United Nations said in a statement. It was the first such strike in more than a month against the Green Zone — a sprawling area in central Baghdad that also houses the U.S. Embassy and the Iraqi government headquarters....


Tech. Sgt. Chris Stagner, a U.S. military spokesman, said explosives ordnance teams determined Iranian-made rockets were used in the Green Zone attack as well as another strike late Friday against Camp Victory, the main military headquarters on the western outskirts of the Iraqi capital. That attack caused only minor damage, Stagner said. The U.S. military accuses Iran of providing weapons, funding and training to Shiite extremists that oppose the U.S. presence in Iraq. Iran denies the allegations....

The U.S. military also announced that a roadside bomb attack Friday damaged a U.S. mine-resistant, ambush-protected vehicle, known as the MRAP, in the Sadrist stronghold of Sadr City. Three men suspected in connection with the attack were detained, the military said. Iraqi security forces also intensified their presence in previously set up checkpoints at Sadr City's main entrances. --more--"
