File under: Govt of Syria
#1 Heck, I'm surprised that IRAN didn't walk away after Morsi/Mursi called on world nations to back the Syruhn Rebs.
* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > IRAN, EGYPT CALL EACH OTHER "STRATEGIC ALLIES".
The US is repor upset that Morsi-led Egypt allowed an Iranian warship to sail thru the Suez Canal. NOT ONLY IS ISRAEL BEING SURROUNDED LIKE CUSTER BY POST-ARAB SPRING, NUCLEAR WANNABE ISLAMIST GOVTS, SO ALSO ARE THE SUNNI SAUDIS BY ALLEGED "NEO-PERSIANIST" RISING IRAN???
* CHINA DAILY FORUM > EGYPT PICKING UP WHERE SADAT LEFT IN '67 [1967 Six-Day War].
* BHARAT RAKSHAK > HOW SOVIET INVASION THREAT FORCED ISRAEL TO CEASE-FIRE IN 1967 WAR | [MERIA] THE RUSSIANS REALLY WERE COMING: THE [unknown = covert]SOVIET MILITARY THREAT IN THE 1967 SIX-DAY WAR.
Very intehwesting, as IIUC ARTIC SOURCE = alludes that Israel's controversial attack on the USS LIBERTY may had been the result of Tel Aviv mistaking the LIBERTY to be part of a SOVIET INVASION FLOTILLA THAT WAS MOVING UP-N-DOWN THE ISRAELI COASTS.
The Cold War USSR instigated the Arab threat agz US ally Israel + then had to militarily scramble to prevent the Arabs' utter defeat in June 1967, I.E. TO SAVE ANTI-US SOVIET CREDIBILITY + INFLUENCE IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
* TOPIX > FROM ANKARA TO TEHRAN, THE PERSIAN-OTTOMAN" RIVALRY IS BACK.
ARTIC = denotes that iff Iran loses Syria, it will be "game over" for the "Shia Axis" [Iran-led "Nexus"].
