Look what was found on Iranian ship headed for Yemen!

INTERCEPTED IRANIAN SHIP WAS CARRYING ANTI-AIR MISSILES AND EXPLOSIVES FOR YEMENI INSURGENTS

the weapons, including Russian-designed anti-aircraft missiles, were hidden inside four containers concealed by a diesel tank. Further details on additional weapons will be releases after the ship is fully unloaded and searched, according to Yemen authorities.

.A US official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said on Monday that the seizure of the ship demonstrates "ever-pernicious Iranian meddling in other countries in the region." The Yemeni government believes that Iran is supporting the Houthis, a Shia insurgent group based in northern Yemen.

THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC DESERVES A DOSE OF ITS OWN WHEN THE TIME IS RIPE

Many foreign nations and people (the Syrians) owe Iran payback for exactly the sort of behavior above which is why I suspect the Iranian people won't have to wait long for foreign arms and other aid come the overdue revolution. The IRI's perpetual targets also must act from sheer self-protection since as long as this regime exists such schemes will continue.

Should they revolt against the mullah tyranny, Iran's people deserve help. Ruling hypcrites can hardly cry about "meddling in our internal affairs" when it arrives. Write down all the places where the IRI has done so. It aided both Al Queda and extremist Shia militias in killing both Americans and Iraqis, even Shias in the case of suicide bombings of markets and mosques. In Afghanistan, Iran aided the Tabiban against the Afghan government and Americans. Iran has shipped weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon, to Al Queda in Kenya and other African countries. Remember the Lebanon marine barracks attacks sponsored by You Know Who.

Then there is Syria where Iran has directly interfered against a popular insurrection by aiding the regime in slaughtering tens of thousands and destroying the country's infrastructure. The above summary fails to include all the places (Rumania, India, Thailand, Argentina, etc.) where regime agents have engaged in direct terrorist actions on foreign soil.


In sum, one can argue that all the foreign nations or who have been target by Iranian destabilization schemes or by Iranian aid to oppressive regimes can and must return the favor when the opportunity arises--not just out of revenge but for sheer self protection since schemes like the one in Yemen and elsewhere will continue so long as the mullahs rule Iran.

That also explains why the IRI can hardly expect to be treated like a "normal" regime when it comes to any quest for nukes. Nukes in the hands of such a regime is as scary as nukes in the hands of Saddam would have been--unthinkable!

Obama vetoes a Clinton/Patreus :Plan to aid rebels. (What does this mean for Iranians?_

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/02/03/us-usa-syria-clinton-idUSBRE91201220130203

Obama's refusal to do so should raise concerns about whether he'd help Iranians should they rebel.

Should the regime develop missile-equipped drones the Iranians will need such help.. Fortunately for Syrians, Assad lacks such weapons.

THE UPSIDE FOR IRANIANS

What most restrains Obama in Syria does not apply to Iran--the fear that extreme Islamists linked to jihadis would either take over or acquire many of the arms and weapons supplied to the Iranian people. In fact, the IRI's fall would be a blow to Al Queda who the IRI has sometimes assisted.

At a minimum, outside assistance would likely include sophisticate anti-air and anti-tank weapons. Would it also include a no-fly zone? :Possibly because some concerns that apply to Syria don't apply to the IRI. First, the terrain is more favorable. Secondly, population and infrasture is less concentrated, reducing concerns about civilian casualties. Finally, Iran lacks the sophisticated Russian anti-air system Syria has, though the Russians could still provide one.

As for air power, the IRI's fighters are far less sophisticated than what Saddam had, let alone Syria. Don't worry about Iran's new--and very suspect--fighter bomber. If the one on display is typically it could hardly accommodate a pilot and lacks many key features required for flight.

Obama's plan is to bleed Islamic republic dry as much it can in helping Syria. I think its a great plan.
