Iran Official: Attack On Syria Is Attack On Iran
[HOSTED.AP.ORG] Issuing Tehran's strongest warning to date, a top Iranian official said Saturday that any attack on Syria would be deemed an attack on Iran, a sign that it will do all it can to protect embattled Syrian Hereditary President-for-Life Bashir Pencilneck al-Assad.
Despoiler of Deraa...
Ali Akbar Velayati, an aide to Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, made his comments as Syrian troops conducted offensive air raids against rebels and discovered a trio of tunnels they were using to smuggle weapons in their fight to topple Assad.
I'm wondering if this is a prelude to "volunteers" from the Basij or the IRGC showing up to fight in Pencilneck's new "militia." All they have to do is term the aid the Sauds and Qatar are pouring in as "international intervention."
The world has been grappling over how to deal with Syria ever since an uprising against Assad's regime erupted nearly two years ago. But so far, there has been no international intervention on the ground where more than 60,000 people have been killed, according to the U.N.
There won't be an "international intervention." The Russians and the Chinese would be 100 percent against it. NATO don't want it spilling over Syria's borders, hence the Patriots, but they're not going to expend any money on it. The Medes and the Persians would be nothing but a source of additional cannon fodder.

The Syrian revolution was pretty neat when it started, evil against moderately good. Then al-Nusrah showed up and it became evil against moderately good and even more evil. The Nusrah turbans expect to toss Pencilneck, then install themselves as the next iron-fisted rulers. I think the Syrian opposition realizes that's what they intend but they're so involved with their own infighting they're not paying any attention to it, figuring they'll worry about it in the sweet by-and-by.
