Iran's Troops Join Assad's Troops

Iran now has troops in Syria fighting along side Assad's troops. At the same time the U.S. has been escalating its arms shipments to the religious extremists who are trying to overthrow the Syrian government

Put two and two together and it should be obvious that a clash is in the works.

U.S. weapons reaching Syrian rebels

The CIA has begun delivering weapons to rebels in Syria, ending months of delay in lethal aid that had been promised by the Obama administration, according to U.S. officials and Syrian figures. The shipments began streaming into the country over the past two weeks, along with separate deliveries by the State Department of vehicles and other gear — a flow of material that marks a major escalation of the U.S. role in Syria’s civil war.
The arms shipments, which are limited to light weapons and other munitions that can be tracked, began arriving in Syria at a moment of heightened tensions over threats by President Obama to order missile strikes to punish the regime of Bashar al-Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons in a deadly attack near Damascus last month.
The arms are being delivered as the United States is also shipping new types of nonlethal gear to rebels. That aid includes vehicles, sophisticated communications equipment and advanced combat medical kits.


Footage emerges of 'Iranians fighting in Syria'

Video footage has emerged that appears to show Iranian nationals dressed in military clothing operating inside Syria and apparently working with government forces.
It comes as Russian and US foreign ministers prepare to hold talks in Geneva to discuss to dismantling Syria's chemical arsenal.
Mohamed Madi from the BBC's Middle East monitoring service has studied the latest footage.
The BBC has not been able to fully authenticate this footage, but based on additional checks made on it, it is believed to be genuine
