Has The War With Iran Already Begun?

Today Iraqi and U.S. troops battled militiamen Northeast of Baghdad today. When the dust had settled, troops realized that they had captured Iranian fighters.

(Reuters) "We captured a number of militants and were surprised to see that some of them were Iranian fighters," the police intelligence captain said.

An Interior Ministry official, who did not want to be named, also said Iranian gunmen had been captured. Baquba lies 90 km (60 miles) from the Iranian border.

The United States and Britain have accused Shi'ite Iran of meddling in Iraq's affairs and providing military assistance to Iraq's pro-government Shi'ite militias. However, there have been few instances of Iranians actually being captured inside Iraq.
We are never leaving Iraq. If I may use a term not usually used with politics, The U.S. Jumped The Shark when we invaded Iraq!
