QUOTE
Senior officials in Baghdad and in southern Iraq said that an unknown number of Iranian troops crossed into Iraq early Friday, where they raised the Iranian flag at an oil well in Iraq's part of the Fakkah oil field, one of several fields that Iraq and Iran share. There were no reports of violence or shots fired.

Amir Arshadi, a spokesman for the Iranian Embassy in Baghdad, denied that such an incident took place and criticized the news media for "spreading rumors."


QUOTE
Border security is one of the main concerns as the American military prepares to withdraw and hand responsibility to Iraqi forces, which remain ill-equipped to prevent the flow of militants and contraband from neighboring countries.


Did U.S. intelligence know about this...I sure hope so...then how did an unknown number of Iraqi troops cross the border...if it really did happen?

Boy, what a strange story. An old oil well in the desert that they tried to auction off and nobody wanted? Is Iran just trying to pick a fight so they can launch a missle?

There has not been peace in the region since islam split over 3000 years ago. When we leave, they will fall into civil war and after that cleansing there will be attempts to take the assets of their neighbors. Nothing we have done or could ever do will change them. I would guess this ia a provocation and more will follow.
