CINCINNATI (TDB) -- More instability in the Middle East is ahead if Iran actually delivers $1 billion in military aid for Syria. This appears to be a sign that no matter what the current U.S. administration says it is doing to make the world safer, it actually may be destabilizing a volatile part of the globe world and endangering allies.
When Saddam was in power, the Baathists were fierce foes of Iran. Now they are friends. The Jerusalem Post story says the Iranian aid includes support for chemical research that might be turned into WMDs.
