Well, this is a little scary. U.S. intelligence intercepted messages from Iran to militants in Iraq ordering attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad if America strikes Syria. U.S officials say they're preparing for Iran's fast boats in the Persian Gulf, and military resources, including Marines, have been moved to the area. The message came from Iran's Revolutionary Guard leader Qasem Soleimani and instructed Shiite groups to respond with force if the U.S. strikes Syria.
