Iran massing troops on Iraq border

Unconvinced by leftist claims that it would be a happy land if the US would just let the Baathists run things in Iraq, Iran has put battalions of troops on the border to fill the 'security vaccum' that would exist after the US pullout. The Saudi daily Al-Sharq al-Awsat, monitored in Beirut, reports Iran has massed four battalions at the border.

Al-Sharq al-Awsat quoted "reliable Iraqi sources" as saying, "Iran moved part of its regular military forces towards the Iraqi border in the southern sector at a time its military intelligence agents were operating inside Iraqi territory."
