Iran Invades Iraq

Iranians seized an oil field in Iraq that is close to the Iranian border. Although Iran and Iraq have disputed who's territory the oil field is in, it is widely accepted that it is on Iraq's side of the border. There were no shots fired and no one was injured when the Iranian forces drove to the oil facility this morning. So far the US representatives in the area have urged calm and are trying to set up a meeting for Saturday between Iran and Iraq to try and resolve the dispute.

It seems to me like Iran keeps trying to do things to annoy the western world at large, but I'm not sure they're really looking for a fight.
