MEMRI on Iranians in Iraq

The Middle East Media Research Institute, MEMRI, has an article detailing ingtelligence on Iranian involvement in Iraq. You don't want to miss it.

With the downfall of its nemesis Saddam Hussein, Iran can now pursue two principal objectives in Iraq: the first is to stir up problems for the Americans to keep them pinned down and divert their attention from its nuclear program. The second is to assert its influence over the Hawza, or the Shi'a religious centers in the two holy cities of Najaf and Karbala,and to prevent the emergence in these cities of an independent religious and spiritual leadership competing with the Iranian city of Qum.

It includes such fascinating topics as

Open Borders - An Invitation to Subversion
