Root For Both Sides

Iran Says Pakistan Is Harboring Rebels

Iran’s deputy police chief accused Pakistan on Saturday of providing a haven for members of an armed rebel group that has claimed responsibility for the deadly twin suicide bombings last week in front of a mosque in the southeastern city of Zahedan.

Chief Ahmadreza Radan also said the authorities had detained 40 people who were seeking to create a disturbance in the city after the bombings, the semiofficial ILNA news agency reported.

The arrests appeared to be part of a crackdown in the Sunni-dominated province of Sistan-Baluchistan, where the rebel group, Jundollah, has been operating.

Without naming Pakistan specifically, he issued a tough warning to “neighbors on the eastern borders” of Iran.

“The Islamic Republic considers it its right to deal with insurgents who disappear into the other side of the border,” Chief Radan was quoted as saying.

Wasn't it an Israeli prime minister who, upon being asked his opinion of the Iran-Iraq war, remarked that he wished them "a long and healthy war"?  

Though I think my own inclination is not to linger too long in the viewing gallery.  Virgil rebuked Dante when he became too vulgarly amused by the sordid slanging-matches and brawlings that were engaged in by the denizens of the Pit.

In Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Part 3 'the Return of the King', Book VI,  chapter  2, 'The land of shadow', Sam and Frodo who are inside the land of Mordor have just seen, from hiding, two Orcs having a fight,  a fight in which one Orc kills the other.  

"Well, I call that neat as neat", he [Sam] said.  If this nice friendliness would spread about in Mordor, half our trouble would be over".  

'Quietly, Sam', Frodo whispered, "There may be others about...But that *is* the spirit of Mordor, Sam; and it has spread to every corner of it.  Orcs have always behaved like that, or so all tales say, when they are on their own.  But you can't get much hope out of it.  They hate us far more, altogether and all the time.  If those two had seen us, they would have dropped all their quarrel until we were dead".
