USA TODAY/AP: TEHRAN, Iran — President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad received his Syrian counterpart Sunday, the first head of state to pay an official visit to the newly-inaugurated Iranian leader, and reiterated that the two countries should unite against their opponents. ... Iran and Syria have long been close. Sunday's was Assad's fourth visit to Iran since he took office in 2000. During the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war, Syria was the only Arab country to support Iran.
Let's get this straight: ASSAD was the very FIRST head of state to visit the new Iranian "leader," and they the first thing they do is proclaim they share the same enemies.
Sheesh: it's like THEY'RE announcing the renewal of the AXIS OF EVIL! Did Karl Rove plan this?!
Kuwait's KUNA NEWS adds: Al-Assad's visit to Tehran is of great importance as it coincides with significant developments in the region, whether in Iraq, Lebanon or Palestine, a political previously source told Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).Since Syrian-Iranian relations have not ever been through any tension, the talks are expected to focus on the US pressure and demands of the two states concerning Iraq, the source predicted. ... the visit follows regular exchange of visits by senior officials and members of the higher joint committee that aimed at coordinating approach to the complex issues and multi-angle developments in the region.
We should have mined the borders between Iraq and Syrias and Iran - AND patrolled them with C-130's in order to shut down all non-inspected cross border movement. These two members of the Axis of Evil have been effing with Iraq from the day Saddam was caught. We should issue them both ULTIMATUMS now: "Stop interfering in Iraq or we wil destroy your miltaries."
