Revolutionary Guard Troops Killed By U.S. Forces In Iraq

BAGHDAD, Aug. 16 (UPI) — Three gunmen killed by U.S. troops in Iraq this week were members of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards Corps, a U.S. military statement said in Baghdad.

The U.S. Army statement said that in several anti-insurgency attacks this week, a total of nine gunmen were killed. However, in one raid in northeastern Baghdad targeting a leader of the Iranian Guards’ foreign fighters known as Al-Quds, three of his aides were killed by U.S. forces, Kuwait’s KUNA news agency reported.

The unidentified leader was arrested on suspicion of supplying arms to Iraqi insurgents, the statement said.

Iran has repeatedly denied coalition allegations it provided training and weapons to Iraqi rebels. Wednesday, the U.S. Department of Defense said it was planning to designate the Revolutionary Guard a terrorist operation, which would disrupt the group’s considerable foreign business transactions.

In another security operation, the military statement said six terrorists were killed in northern Baghdad. The raid also netted machine gun rounds and components used to make explosive devices, the report said.

Wild Thing's comment........

Thank you brave fighting soldiers of the red, white and blue. God Bless the United States Military!

72 X 3 = 216, that’s alot of virgins on standby. Since we had kidded they all look like Helen Thomas....

here she is waiting for them.
Sorry could not get a burka to sohw up this small wiithout looking like a Halloween outfit. heh heh

I get so tired of these units being referred to as “elite”. The best training offered by the Iranians is a joke compared to the standard training given to American Soldiers. Elite means Special Forces, Rangers, Seals, and units like the SAS.

In the Korean War, Gunny Vader and his E25 platoon was killing Commie Red Chinks by the hundreds, and they were told that "China wasn't in that war?" - Bomb Bomb Bomb... Bomb Bomb Iran!
(Beach Boys 1960's hit) All we need is some B-52 drops on the Iraniac border... If Bush can't secure OUR borders, then how can we expect Iraq to do the same!

I wonder how many Iranians and Revolutionary Guards we have killed and captured. Probably a lot. Those captured are good intel for us. That elite' crap is a bunch smoke being blown.

I'm with darth. A few Arc Lights(carpet bombings) along the Iranian border would take some of the wind out of Iranian sails.

These are the best they can offer, these are their 'bad-asses', ... This is what they can never understand, accomplish or defeat us.

Far too much emphasis is placed on collateral damage, this does not affect the civilian population that harbors, aids and assists the terrorists. General Curtis LeMay understood this and it was applied with success. Punitive bombing does two things it teaches the enemy that to harbor the enemy has consequences and it teaches the enemy that they can't hide amongst the civilians. Bring on some saturation bombing, along the Iranian and Syrian borders, especially anywhere near al-Sadr's residence. You can't win with the politically correct bullshit and pusillanimous rules of engagement. ARCLITE the bastards. When their bowels loose at the sound of an approaching aircraft maybe they'll think twice about sheltering Iranian and Syrian troops.

And just what is the Revolutionary Guard doing in Iraq? Did they lose their map and cross the border by accident?
Gee--and to think the libs want to talk to these people?
