Here’s some more on the American military raid on that Iranian consulate in Kurdistan. Obviously, Iran complaining about violations of diplomatic protocol is a bit rich. By the same toke, Americans complaining that a foreign country’s military is meddling in Iraqi affairs is a bit rich.

The arrests of the Iranians “is an illegal act and if such an act took place in another country there would have been grave consequences,” said Nouri Talabani, a member of the parliament in Kurdistan.

Is this Nouri Talabani related to Jalal Talabani?
