Iranians on holiday

Bill Roggio on striking at Iran in Iraq.

U.S. forces raided the Iranian consulate in Irbil in northern Iraq, and detained five Iranians, along with computers, documents and other evidence the Iranians were colluding with the Sunni insurgency and Shia death squads.

While Russia decried the raid on the consulate as "a flagrant violation of the Vienna convention on consular relations," Iran admitted "the office did not have formal diplomatic status." The Iraqi and local Kurdish government are pressing for the release of the Iranians, however.
There are lots of Iranians wintering in Iraq at the moment, evidently. Perhaps we should talk to them, find out how we can help them get over the anger.
