Rocket Hits IRAN????? Not Good!!!!

Friday, March 21, 2003; 2:23 PM



TEHRAN (Reuters) - A rocket hit an oil refinery depot in southwestern Iran close to the border with Iraq and two people have been injured, Iranian government sources told Reuters on Friday.

The sources said it was not clear where the rocket, which hit the depot in the city of Abadan, had come from. Abadan is about 30 miles east of the southern Iraqi city of Basra.

It hit the building around 7:45 p.m. local time, they said.

While it is not clear who fired the missle, it should be noted that Scuds are not the most accurate thing on the block.

Rumsfeld got over anxious,

by about six months.

50% of the American people do not believe the 9-11 hi-jackers were Iranian, yet.

Well whoever fired the rocket, I hope this won't start some additional mess in that area. (or any more anti-West hate)

Yeah, lets hope Iran is nice enough to stay out of this business.

Thanks for the link.

Iran probably will stay out of it. They're frightened of the U.S. attacking them anyway. If I had to guess, I would say that Iraq probably threw a missile at Iran to provoke them. Saddam likes to play those kinds of games.

Although, anything is truly possible.

"Iran, which fought an eight-year war with Iraq in the 1980s in which hundreds of thousands were killed on both sides, has condemned the U.S.-led attack on its western neighbor, but vowed not to be drawn into the conflict."

Lets hope this stays true, If any country bordering Iraq joins in it would be a disaster

I didn't want to start a new thread, but Turkey has just stated they are going into Northern Iraq regardless of the Us's opinion. Another major complication.
