TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian border guards detained seven U.S. troops as they tried to illegally enter the Islamic state, the semi-official Fars news agency reported on Sunday.

The report didn't cite any source.

============================

I'm sure there's in interesting story behind that brief teaser.

Wait a minute, U.S. forces running amok? No accountability? Gunslingers inspiring hatred all over the world?

Same old story, nothing new. What a let down.

Having eaten a trillion USD recently, the U.S. military industrial complex has grown. It's even grown whole new components -- drone assassins, private armies such as Blackwater Xe, etc.

More powerful than ever, these are the guys that control Washington. U.S. Presidents have no control over what our next wars will be. They're coming, and their never ending. Those that control the military industrial complex now control America and won't let go. Wars make them richer and more powerful.

Peace no more.

And then...

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran denied on Sunday that border guards had detained seven U.S. troops, calling the report "unfounded", the state-run English language Press TV said.

The country's Arabic language television al-Alam also quoted Iran's Revolutionary Guards, in charge of Iran's border security, as denying that any such incident had happened in the southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchestan.

A senior defense official told NBC News that no U.S. soldiers were missing in the area near the Iranian border. The official described it as a "false report."

Earlier, the semi-official Fars news agency had reported that the American troops had been arrested while trying to illegally enter the Islamic state.

"Recently seven American troops were detained by Iranian guards in a southeastern province of the country," Fars said. "Two Iranians accompanying the troops were also arrested."
