According to a Haaretz article, some U.S. officials have told the Washington Post that Iran is providing aid to Syria.

The "report" says that Iranian ships (a destroyer and a supply ship) have docked in Syria.

The "report" says the two countries have an agreement for Iran to provide maritime training to Syria.

That sounds a little fishy since there seems to a war going on !!!

Latest update 09:09 04.03.12 -- Haaretz, Israel

Iran is increasing the flow of military and intelligence aid to the Syrian army, as the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad attempts to brutally stamp out pockets of resistance across the country, the Washington Post reported on Sunday.

The report came after only a few weeks ago Iranian broadcaster Press TV reported that two Iranian warships docked at a Syrian port.

The vessels - a destroyer and a supply ship - are to provide maritime training to Syria's navy under an agreement between the two countries, according to the report.

U.S. officials speaking to the Washington Post say intelligence reports indicate Iranian aid 'increasingly focused on lethal assistance'

Can't locate a Washington Post article.

With plenty of "intelligence", why not do something instead of talking ?

How come Israel did not stop the ships ?

here's the WP article:

U.S. officials: Iran is stepping up lethal aid to Syria

They mention

Three U.S. officials with access to intelligence reports ...
insisting on anonymity

but no names

AND - "big guys wearing black" have been spotted !!!

Stories of Syrian troops being accompanied by black-bearded men speaking a foreign language and assumed to be Iranian have circulated widely inside Syria for many months, but activists acknowledge they have little hard evidence that Iranians are actually participating in the offensives.

“We saw some evidence, but we can’t prove it,” said Omar Shakir, who fled to Lebanon from the former opposition stronghold of Bab Amr in Homs a week ago. “We have seen tall guys, big guys wearing black.”

Why should Iran not suport Syria with gun and bombs because the USA under the orders of its zionist bankers are doing just that in about 20 places across the world.

Look at Libya as an example and today you will find the population have risen up agsint zionist puppets that started the revolt and is anything but a safe place to be but they don't show any of that on the news do they.

Keep taking your daily dose of propaganda or watch Russia Today to get the real picture of whats going on in Syria or read up on the French being captured after fighting with the rebels

Because Syrian government/army has proven to be very chaotic with all the... you know.. slaughtering of it's own people.
4000 Dead in Syria - and that's just from December 2011!

How many deaths were there in Cast Lead operation? Less than half of that? And that didn't make you guys explode from anger? Oh yes it did.
But when double or triple that amount are dead by a Muslim dictator, it's all good. Why? Because Israel is not responsible. Yeah.

Keep taking your daily dose of propaganda or watch Russia Today

HAHA! I find that sentence humorous. "Keep being uncool or buy Nike today!".

No but seriously, just why do you think RT holds more credibility than any other news agency world wide? What makes you think they haven't got an agenda to push, just like everyone else?

By completely buying into RT and thinking everyone are liars except them, you have already took your daily, weekly dose of propaganda. RT propaganda.

It's pretty pathetic looking at all the anti-Western pro-China/Iran/Russia people holding so much regard for RT just because they are mostly anti-Western as well.

Is it any different from the USA funding the IRA. Which they did. Not offically of course. Just the black ops crew dong their good work for the USA. Or how about the west arming alCIAda so that they could over throw gadaffi? And of course the same alCIAda were then sent on to Syria. alCIAda is a very good special ops unit of the USA. Bin ladin AKA Tim Osman, is owed a medal by the USA, for bringing down the russians in the afghan. Right up till 911 Tim Osman was still being funded by the USA and on the books of the CIA.
Syria? Its a sunni uprising against the shia leaders. Bin ladin was a sunni? as are the rest of the saudis. So alCIAda are a sunni terrorist group, funding by the saudis and the USA.

I would be wondering why many Syrians are not supporting this guy, because this is who America wants in power!

Is it wrong to oppose such a hateful dictator, maybe we should love it? What would you do if this guy was about to take power in your country?

^^^ This is not Islam, nor Islamic teachings, yet America wants to help these people! Why?
