Iran has deployed hundreds of fighters in Syria, unprecedentedly deepening its involvement on behalf of President Bashar Assad in the Syrian civil war, Israeli security officials said Thursday.

The West's airstrikes in Syria are attacking ISIS so right now everyone in Syria, thinking about going to Syria, are fighting ISIS. Bad news for ISIS, good news for Assad, but will the West strike Assad as well? Definitely possible.
I wouldn't say hundreds of Iranian troops is a dramatic escalation. Iran has been assisting Syria the entire time from aid to troops. Iran is even in Iraq fighting ISIS.
They have already lost. They have forced us to destroy them. What the # is going through their minds?

All the world powers are slowly teaming up. To destroy ISIS. It's about time we put all our differences aside and actually worked together towards something important.
