Iran WILL protect Syria

The Mullahs were slow, not wishing to immediately downplay or even discourage seemingly popular "Islamist" led uprisings against secular, moderate, pro-Western dictators-----this was after all the replay of 1979, and their own Islamic Revolution. 

But over time slowly the mullah regime has given its public backing to the Socialist Assad regime, essentially for four reasons:

(i) Syria is the longest, most reliable ally of Iran.
(ii) Is the only unquestioning Arab ally of Iran. American remolded Iraq less so.
(iii) Syria is a Shia sect led nation. Alawites who are 13% of Syria's population have ruled the country since the end of colonialism. This means for all its pan-Islamic talk mullah Iran is more keenly focused on the advancement of Shia Muslims. Ditto its relationship with Shia Hezbollah.
(iv) If Syria is allowed to be toppled by "al-CIA-duh" it will be Iran's turn next, followed by Central Asia, and then Russia and China.

It is not unreasonable to guess the Israeli propaganda reports of 30,000 Revolutionary Guard in Syria, fighting Sunni based "al-CIA-duh" affiliated groups who take great pleasure in desecrating Shia shrines in Syria, of which there are many.

If Turkey can OPENLY entertain, train, arm, finance SUNNI "al-CIA-duh" terrorists, rapists, murderers, looters and traitors with the help of the USA/Israel to attack Syria......this is the least Iran can do.


Iran Will Not Allow West to Overthrow Assad: Salehi

By Press TV and Information clearing House.

--  Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi says Iran will never allow any Western plots to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to succeed.

Salehi on Sunday stressed that Iran would not allow Western projects to forcibly overthrow Assad -- whether by indirect meddling in the form of arming militants or direct meddling -- to succeed.

He added that the behavior of Western powers and certain regional countries towards Syria is in blatant violation of accepted human regulations and divine laws.
Salehi said such hostile behavior cannot be justified under any circumstances and “such behaviors must be immediately stopped which is exactly what we have proposed in the form of a six-point plan for Syria to the UN, [the UN-Arab League Special Envoy to Syria] Lakhdar Brahimi, and several regional countries including Egypt and Saudi Arabia.”
The Iranian foreign minister said pressures exerted on an independent country like Syria to change its policies with regards to colonialism and occupation were against international law.

“Efforts are underway to overthrow the ruling system in Syria without regards for the vote of the Syrian nation and this is while only Syrians have the right to choose their political system and leader,” Salehi said.

The top Iranian diplomat emphasized that despite increasing foreign efforts for regime change in Syria, Iran would do everything in its power to prevent this from happening.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of security forces, have been killed in the violence.

The Syrian government says certain Western states especially the United States and its regional allies are fueling the unrest.
