Syria crisis: Iran and Assad have won, say top Tehran foreign policy figures | World news | The Guardian

Iran and its close ally President Bashar al-Assad have won the war in Syria, and the US-orchestrated campaign in support of the opposition’s attempt to topple the Syrian regime has failed, senior Iranian officials have told the Guardian.

In a series of interviews in Tehran, top figures who shape Iranian foreign policy said the west’s strategy in Syria had merely encouraged radicals, caused chaos and ultimately backfired, with government forces now on the front foot.

Well, there’s some unbiased observers.  Unfortunately, from here it looks very much as if they are right.

This is why the Saudis are so pissed off with the Obama administration.  Not that I care about that.  I’m tired of the US government being in the pocket of the Saudis.  That said, I’m not thrilled about the US leaving that situation to take up kowtowing to the Iranians instead.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
