The game is afoot

I woke up this morning to news of the Iranians shelling into Iraqi-Kurdish territory for the first time in years.
ZAKHU, Iraq (Reuters) - Iranian forces shelled Iranian Kurdish rebel positions inside mountainous northern Iraq on Friday to repel an attack, wounding at least four civilians, Iraqi Kurdish officials said.

"This morning Iranian Kurdish fighters infiltrated the border into the Iranian side and the Iranian army bombed the area and repelled them. The shelling hit Iraqi land at Sidakan," said Saadi Pira, an official in Iraq's Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) party.
Oh great, here it comes. Listen for the growing drumbeat about Iranian aggression.

The fact that they were repelling an assault by Iranian Kurdish fighters will get drowned out by the sound of nuclear saber rattling.

And who's egging on the Iranian Kurds against Iran?
