IRAN OFFICIAL: ATTACK ON SYRIA IS ATTACK ON IRAN
AP ^ | 1/26/2013 | BASSEM MROUE AND ALI AKBAR DAREINI

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 President Bashar Assad.

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.

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.

Not a surprise, considering the Alawites follow a branch of the Twelver school of Shia Islam. Assad and Ahmadinejad are birds of a feather!

Uh Oh, they figured out Obama wasn’t chicken, he’s Yellow.

No guns at Benghazi, and now they’re interpreting weakness in Obama’s foreign Policy, sending out a bat eyed Secretary of State to do a man’s job.

As reports of an attack on Iran's Fordow centrifuge instatllation appear.

Iran's economy destabilized by sanctions.

Syria overrun by fireants.

Attack on Syria by whom.

Deniability dictated the US Gov would blame a video for its own arms-running on behalf of Saudi.

We aren't really having fun until the ayatollahs fulminate.

Good job zippy big ears. Good idea assisting the Syrian salafist MB rebels. Before long, our kids will be in a ground war,, on behalf of Al Qeida,,, against Syria and Iran. And maybe we will kill a few Russian technicians working for Assad.

I guess it will make Obamas Saudi owners happy. ANd all out regional war has got to make us and Israel far safer from terrorists/

Wonder what gasoline will go up to?

I notice that other countries don’t feel the need to issue a ‘strongly worded letter’ and stress the desire for negotiations when trouble comes their way.

I say we upgrade to a three for one plan and include Saudi Arabia. You may recall Saudi Arabia as the jihad theocracy that sent us nearly all the hijackers for the September 11, 2001 attacks.

I mean that literally.

Buddah says:

“Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.”

And although it’s claimed to be a mistranslation, it works for me when it comes to anything to do with the middle east. (Or Democrats.)

No matter what happens, Iran will survive to attack Israel vis-a-vis Ezekiel 38.

It is prophesied and it shall come to pass exactly to the letter.

How we get there exactly, I don’t know.

Psalm 83 describes the next war, waged by those nations who are close to Israel (Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Egypt...) with the purpose of “cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more”. The results are described by Obadiah and will lead to the conditions of peace and prosperity (this and the gas fields!) needed to launch Eze 38. I understand that Iran will not be directly involved in this earlier war (Ps 83), but Iran’s proxy Hezbollah will.

The warning was to the GCC/Turkey combo. They are supplying the means to carry out the war
