Universal Import-Export

EFP warheads, of the sort made in Iran to penetrate Coalition armored vehicles in Iraq, have made an appearance in Afghanistan. "The intended target was mostly likely a high-level government convoy. ... senior ... officials have told the BBC that Iran's security agencies are involved with supplying the Taleban insurgency with money, weapons and explosives."

The BBC concludes: "There is increasing evidence that sophisticated explosives technology is crossing into Afghanistan from Iraq." Let's see, how does that work? Iraq has no land border with Afghanistan. So presumably, Iran first makes the EFPs then exports it to Iraq and then reimports it into Iran to transit it into Afghanistan. That's the only physical routing possible. Or did the BBC just stick the word "Iraq" in there because it could?

Becuase it could -- and because it wanted this to be the case. Fits the narrative.
