    Default Iran: Attack on Syria is an attack on us

    Looks like they've adopted Rand's foreign policy ??

    -
    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran considers any attack against Syria an attack on itself, an advisor to the Islamic Republic's supreme leader was quoted as saying Saturday, the strongest warning to date by a top Iranian official that Tehran will use any available means to keep the regime of President Bashar Assad in power.

    Ali Akbar Velayati, an aide to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Syria plays a major role in the "resistance front" of anti-Israel states and militant groups.

    "Syria plays a very key role in supporting, or God forbid destabilizing, the resistance front. For this same reason, attack on Syria is considered attack on Iran and Iran's allies," Velayati was quoted by the semiofficial Mehr news agency as saying.

    I've been knowing this for a while now, perhaps they're just re-posturing. Not like Rand has anything to do with Obama inc.

    It's on the list.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Good. Maybe this will keep our nose out of where it doesn't belong.

    Americans are attracted to war like moth to a flame. It's addiction, an obsession. We're nothing more than junkie trying to get its fix. And we will.

    Pretty typical, All defence of Iran for an interventionist statement. But that is right Iran can do no wrong, only the US
    War; everything in the world wrong, evil and immoral combined into one and multiplied by millions.

    fine with me, The US doesn't attack Syria, Iran doesn't attack Israel. We can all live in peace and get back to bankrupting our country with lots and lots of debt.

    Rand says this about Israel and he "is kissing the ass of the Israel lobby".

    So by extension Iran is kissing the ass of the Syria lobby.

    Or does this sort of stuff only apply to Americans? How come it's not interventionism when they do it?

    Something our founders warned about.

    Not sure if their founders said anything about it.
    But Iran has not invaded anyone for hundreds of years. That can not be said for any of the other players.

    Probably because there is no powerful "Syria lobby" which controls foreign policy in Iran. Do you really honestly believe the two situations are similar?

    Why would this alliance be considered entangling, when it is mutually beneficial? They don't control each other's policies but they really need each other's support for their own survival.

    Who said it's not interventionism when they do it? And no - this sort of stuff does not only apply to Americans.

    But as an American living in America I am much more concerned about the American government's depredations than I am about the Iranian government's.

    After all, it's not Ahmedinejad's bosses (or their Syrian buddies) who are stealing my money to fund their obstreperously wretched bloody-mindedness ...

    It is. My question in turn would be why tf would I care what countries Iran wants to intervene in? Good for Iran. Good for Syria. Good for us if we'd ever get the f out the region... Oh and fuck Israel. They can defend themselves..... or not. It's not really my business one way or another what they decide to do.
