I see it as make or break for Iran , Iraq well as Syria.
The Jew is either in or out.
Problem is there is no middle ground.
So the principal players of the Arab Spring have had their interest's superseded.
Jordan is hosting a Jew intervention that is totally opaque, because like Turkey it is all consuming.
Wit the Mahdi and Christ about to appear on the scene it's not surprising Obama wants to hurry up and create a smoke screen of war.

You have to excuse Jude. He gets quite heated and fanatical on the topic of Syria. It seems to be a trait many al Qaeda cheerleaders have these days.

Jude has even stated here that any Shiites, Alawites, Christians, Druze or Sunni civilians not joining the opposition deserve to be slaughtered.

If he's not al Qaeda, boy....he sure talks like one.

No Hassan Rouhani is just a figurhead.
Ali Khamenei is the dictator of Iran.

Al Qaeda is embedded in the FSA. You sound very stupid when you state the opposite of reality.

Sheeple dont care about truth... they just expect the army and security to not defend themselves when they being shot at... also if you include all the security forces that died they can say the assad regime killed twice as many people even though half are their own supporters!

Looks like most people have fallen victim to media manipulation... they dont have the brain power to think for themselves and instead do and beleive anything their told like a good slave...

True. This is just political ploy to make Iranians feel good.

OK well, let's hear why the Democratic Traditions of a Nation would NOT be a political ploy to make the citizens of that Country feel good.

Don't bother replying that that is what you meant .
I know that it is not.
I know that because your communicating in a favourable light with the Avenger who everyone knows is abysmal.

Who would put their trust in political outcomes, as an overall direction..
Answer,
A sky-writer, because his or her trust will soon be blown away.
And then they'll be as docile and abysmal as the Avenger.
Religion which is really just philosophy is far better.
So put your anchor in the sea of hostility tied firmly to Stalinism, and you won't go far wrong.
Then be the smart bastard like me.
