Iran is fighting a proxy war against Saudi Arabia by funding militants in Yemen.
Iran recently sent men and tanks to take over an Iraqi oil well a good distance within Iraq and took down the Iraq flag and hoisted an Iranian one
Iran is funding and equipping the terrorists in Gaza to attack Israel and at this time also Egypt. It is worth remembering that there is a main street in Tehran named after the man who murdered Anwar Sedat for having made peace with Israel.
Iran of course has Hizbolah cells that have all but taken over Lebanon and have a great deal of influence in Syria. Now Hizbolah has serious bases in Venezuela and will certainly give Chavez a lot more than he bargained for when the US is forced to retaliate for Hizbolah actions originating out of Venezuela, as is more and more likely.

Iran interferes with German news satellite
Published: 2 Jan 10 11:55 CET
The German state foreign broadcasting network Deutsche Welle (DW) was the target of a deliberate jamming signal originating in Iran, according to a report in news magazine Der Spiegel.
According to the report, the French national radio regulatory agency Agence Nationale des Fréquences wrote to the Iranian Ministry of Communication saying that on December 7 and December 8 signals had been detected that looked like “deliberate interference” with the DW satellite.
The affected satellite was the Hot-Bird satellite belonging to Eutelsat. The satellite operators apparently reacted to the disturbance by increasing the broadcasting power, whereupon the disturbance signal was also strengthened, cutting out an Arabian language TV broadcast from DW.
The origin of the disturbance was traced to the area of Tehran. Similar disturbances coming from Iran were already detected by the French authority in May and June 2009.
