Syria gets backing of Iran loons
TEETERING Syria has won support despite its prime minister fleeing, accusing the vile government of genocide.
Unfortunately for the country’s tyrant leader, that support came from the region’s other rogue basket case, Iran.
Iran’s security chief Saeed Jalili told President Bashar alAssad ( above) that Syria is part of a vital regional alliance that Tehran will not allow to be broken.
During talks in Damascus, Jalili said Syria was an essential part of an “axis of resistance”.
The statement came a day after Syrian Prime Minister Riad Hijab defected to the rebel opposition.
Chinless tyrant Assad had told Jalili of “the determination of the government of Syria to cleanse the country from the terrorists and fight against terrorism unreservedly”.
He said Syria would “continue on the path of national dialogue” and was “capable of thwarting the foreign conspiracies”.
Correspondents say “axis of resistance” refers to Iran, Syria, Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Palestinian group Hamas in Gaza.
