Touch Syria, and you will hear Iran.

the violence in Syria and the calls for UN sanctions from Washington to James Denselow, a writer on Middle East politics and security.




it's well know that america wants to stir trouble in syria,as to undermine russia.....

as the alliance between iran and syria is very strong,and if the west does put a intervention in syria,iran has to do something,as to save face for it's people and the allinace it holds,which will spiral out of control very fast.

this is worrying times...are we about to have world war 3.

Iran won't do squat to any force that invades Syria (if that's even going to happen). The only thing that lousy regime is capable of doing is maybe using one of it's proxies to launch a totally unrelated barrage of rockets against Israel in an excuse that this whole ordeal is a Zionist plot and Israel/US are behind it all.

"Touch Syria and you will hear Iran"..? Not many people are shaking.

I concur with those thoughts. Iran has a very strong alliance with Syria, so will feel obliged.

However, I don't think the West will intervene apart from applying sanctions. There is no way they will get this through the U.N and without an U.N resolution, it will not be legal and therefore they will deserve to be smacked down.

There is a lot of moaning from some Arabic countries which have come out of the Wikilweaks papers about Syria, but NO Arabic Country will support a NFZ, like Libya. Also, there is no oil there, so people are on their own, except for the sanctions. Much like Iraq were for many years prior to Saddam being ousted through an illegal war.

But at least Iraq had oil to trade off with, Syria has nothing.

I don't think Iran will do anything on this. The Russians might. They don't have to do much. They can direct their "White Swans" to fly a little closer to British air space. That's all it would take.

To be fair the recent events and ongoing turmoil in the M.E are pointing more and more towards this.

If you think they're not then please look at the history books. Events like these have always led to some kind of BIG conflict and many historians have predicted that this is where the next BIG war will stem from.

Of course I hope they are all wrong and then that will give us all a chance of being oblitereated in 2012.

Why would you care what my nickname is? Only to have a reason to discard my opinions I bet.

Anyway, rest of the world is worried about the genocide in Syria, not about Iran's involvement.

And no, regardless of my nickname on this site as if it matters anything, I'd like to maintain the current situation of no war with anybody and if possible to stretch it and have peace with our neighbors. I love going to Egypt every weekend to gamble at their casino and I'd love it if it stays this way. Wars don't fuel me.

As for America backing Israel, I suppose Iran and Syria are totally independent and don't use foreign weapons themselves? Would you like to compare the list of Israeli weapons and military inventions used by Israel and Syrian/Iranian ones used by them? Feel free to do so.

My point still stands. Iran will do nothing and you will not hear any proud statements out of it in case an invasion on Syria occurs. The only actions they will take is using their proxies far away from their homeland in a pathetic attempt to undermine Israel's security, while keeping very quiet in fears of an F16I squadron above Tehran.
Only this time, unlike Lebanon II, Israel will not hold anything back.

Evidence to what I say being truth is - how loud was Iran when Israel bombed the Syrian reactor to a pile of mud and concrete? Yeah, they kept silent. They will stay silent even if the US invade Syria and put a US flag in the middle of Damascus.

Iran would do exactly what? if the Ubber Nutjobs (U.N.) would decide to treat Syria like they are Libya and get into some more "Humanitarian" feel good killing! What exactly could "Iran" do? Are they like some huge military power? How many nukes do they have? Just what would we hear from Iran excpet that they're pissed and want to blow up some more school buses or stuff like that which doesn't shoot back! Tell me, just what would I hear from Iran and don't they understand that the US does in fact want to give them a whole lot of payback! I for one think we should have pulled the trigger on Iran instead of Iraq, and on Saudi Arabia instead of A-Stan, but hey, what do I know, I'm just some dumbass, war-mongering American right!! Damn Straight !!

I personally think Iran will act, Iran knows it is only a matter of time before its forced into war anyway, so it might as well do it for an ally...And that way it would most likely draw in others too.

There was a disturbing post on this site about the comet yesterday and the Fukushima area continues to pour radiation out, so things seem to be a bit of a mess. The future is not what it used to be.

oh come on,do you think i'm that naive,to think it would be a invasion force from iran,or some kind of air battle,come on slayer you know full well,its iran's unconventional weapons and tactics,rather than its conventional military/air force,that would pose the greatest threat,guerrilla warfare,and dirty bombs.

iranian networks in Iraq and afghanistan could imperil US interests there,merican forces throughout the gulf region could be targeted by asymmetric methods and lethal rocket barrages,and Iranian partners across the region,such as hezbollah in lebanon,could be mobilized to engage in an anti-west fight.

it's entering the twilight zone for any contingency planner,it will set a firestorm off across the whole arab world,which will cause problems for all those heavily invested in these regions.


Iran's supreme religious leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei also warned of far-reaching revenge in 2006. "The Americans should know that if they assault Iran, their interests will be harmed anywhere in the world that is possible," he said. "The Iranian nation will respond to any blow with double the intensity."



i don't particularly like iran or how they operate,but i know it would be long bloodly mess if the west does finally cross paths with them.

I appreciate the feedback.

It's interesting to note that in your reply you mention the possibility of a "Dirty Bomb" so then the West should rightfully be concerned and justified about a possible Nuclear threat from Iran?


iranian networks in Iraq and afghanistan could imperil US interests there,merican forces throughout the gulf region could be targeted by asymmetric methods and lethal rocket barrages,and Iranian partners across the region,such as hezbollah in lebanon,could be mobilized to engage in an anti-west fight.


Here again....

You use their known influence in those regions to support your argument. Many Iranian apologists here at ATS should find that argument not only interesting but also take note that many here who have been saying that very thing for years do have a base of reality to them. The points you made and [I agree with are real] only further supports the Wests concerns...


it's entering the twilight zone for any contingency planner,it will set a firestorm off across the whole Arab world,which will cause problems for all those heavily invested in these regions.


Like Russia losing it's arms sales to Iran, Libya and Syria etc?

Or the potential for new competitors for EU fuels sales that Russia doesn't have at the moment, the EU being Russia's #1 customer. Understand that once countries like Iran are allowed to do business with the EU etc, when the sanctions come off either through Regime change or a change in their foreign policy/meddling, Russia will have new competitors for their desperately needed revenue. This is why Russia supports them...

1. The Russians love those Arms $ales

2. they don't want more competition for fuel sales.$. It's all about OIL.

The Russians are not a bunch of warm and fun loving guys.

Also, Iranians are not "Arab" they're Persian so it doesn't surprise me that they are involved in predominantly "ARAB" countries stirring the Sectarian issues between Sunni and Shiite to solely further Iran's Agenda. They could care less how many ARABs die!. I noticed how you overlooked that aspect of the situation. So are you saying that you support their sectarian drive?


Iran's supreme religious leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei also warned of far-reaching revenge in 2006. "The Americans should know that if they assault Iran, their interests will be harmed anywhere in the world that is possible," he said. "The Iranian nation will respond to any blow with double the intensity."



Iran's Supreme leader can kiss my smooth tan buttocks.

Time will tell.

Iran is far more cautious (and clever) than the insane rhetoric of their politicians would suggest. If I remember rightly, they threatened the Saudis with all sorts of nastiness should they dare intervene in Bahrain, but when the GCC called their bluff Iran had to go back to the drawing board.

Iranian defence strategy revolves around deterrence and lighting up the region/preventing oil shipping through the SoH is their best card. Doing either would trigger a full-scale shoeing and so this will be saved as a final vindictive act in the event of NATO making war on Iran itself, but perhaps more appropriately to prevent it from happening in the first place.

I don't think that we will be "touching Syria" [as they've been with Iran, ew! Who knows what they've got!], but if we did then the Iranian response would be along the lines of "YOU EVIL WESTERNERS!" *fist shake*.

They would surely act but they're not going to do anything as serious as the above, because they see a great many countries as being on the starting block ready to issue the aforementioned shoeing. It's something that they feel they need to tip-toe around - and they do.
