Afghans Seize Bombs Disguised As Toys

From an unfazed Agence France-Presse:

Afghan police seize 22 tons of explosives from Iran

Wednesday, 06 Oct 2010

(AFP) – Afghan police said Wednesday they had seized 22 tons of explosives stashed in boxes marked "food, toys and kitchenware" that were imported from neighboring Iran.

The discovery was made Tuesday in a customs office in the western province of Nimroz on the Iranian border, deputy provincial police chief Mohammad Musa Rasouli said.

"We found these materials hidden in a 40 foot (12 meter) shipping container that had come from Iran. The explosives were disguised as merchandise like food, toys and kitchenware," he added

To be fair, these weapons were probably made at an Iranian baby milk factory.

Meanwhile, back at home, San Francisco’s city fathers are seizing the toys they find in Happy Meals.

    Whether a 22 ton bomb or nuclear bombs, Iran’s Ahmadinejad still treated like a King by Obama’s invitations to the White House or most recently NYC, USA.

    Reuters gives confusing warnings between U.S. & Iran.

    US warns Lebanon against Ahmadinejad visit to South
    Tue Oct 5, 2010
    (Reuters) – The U.S. State Department said on Tuesday it had warned the Lebanese government about the risks of a visit by Iran’s president to Lebanon next week.
    Lebanese officials expect President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran,…

    Ahmadinejad’s visit is his first to Lebanon as president…

    …, saying Ahmedinejad regards Lebanon as “an Iranian base on the Mediterranean.”

    U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton raised the issue of Ahmadinejad’s proposed visit when she met Lebanese President Michel Suleiman in New York last month on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly.

    “We expressed our concern about it given that Iran, through its association with groups like Hezbollah, is actively undermining Lebanon’s sovereignty,” State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley told reporters at his daily briefing.

    “But … we respect that these are judgments for (the) Lebanese government to make,” he added.

    Lebanese political sources have said they expect Ahmadinejad to meet Hezbollah politicians…

    U.S. commanders have warned that military strikes against Iran could spark retaliatory action by Tehran and its allies like Hezbollah and Hamas that could destabilize the region.
