Catching the Iranian Suicide Bus to Lebanon

“60 one way tickets to Lebanon, please…”

Surrounded by yellow Hezbollah flags, 60 suicide volunteers jumped on a bus outside of Tehran, to go help wipe Israel off the map on Wednesday.

More than 60 volunteer militiamen set off Wednesday to try to join the fight against Israeli forces in Lebanon in what organizers called the first convoy of ‘Islamic warriors’ offering their help from Iran. Iran says it will not send regular forces to aid Hezbollah, but apparently will not attempt to stop volunteer guerrillas. (World Picture News)

A passport, Koran and a deranged mind was all that was needed.
