The U.S. disrupts an Iranian plot to assassinate Saudi ambassador
"The U.S. uncovered an alleged Iranian plot to kill Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States as well as bomb the Israeli Embassy in Washington and the Saudi and Israeli Embassies in Argentina."
"The central conundrum about Iran has always been whether it is a rational power, in the mold of Communist China, or a revolutionary one, along the lines of Napoleonic France or even Hitler's Germany,

However be like the 300 by keeping your head up and on a shrivel to the truth
"The Quds Force are very good. They don't sit down with people they don't know and make a plot. They use proxies and they are professional about it."
Former CIA agent Robert Baer poured scorn on the reported Iranian conspiracy. "This stinks to holy hell," he told Britain's Guardian newspaper.
" It would be very hard to believe that senior Iranian officials condoned such an operation"

"A car approached and... the driver smashed through the checkpoint and exploded the car when he hit a concrete barrier," Police Lt. Nadeer Adel told Reuters. "Smoke was everywhere, we all took cover. Minutes later we found a crater and some of our police were dead."
-"The scene was horrific," said Salim Ghadban, who was having breakfast when he heard a loud explosion, "We saw terrified people, some injured, running in our direction, and we rushed to the attacked police station and saw burned bodies and charred cars," he said. "We helped cover the burned bodies until the ambulances arrived."
At a nearby hospital where the victims were taken, Hardan Salah sat with a friend, two shrapnel wounds to his back and X-rays of his injuries laying on the bed nearby. "
