The Tehran Times ^ | 18 June, 2012

Posted on 06/18/2012 10:02:04 AM PDT by Errant

TEHRAN – An informed source has announced that Iran, Russia, China, and Syria plan to stage a joint war game in Syria in the near future, the Persian service of the Fars News Agency reported on Monday.

90,000 forces from the four countries will be involved in the war game, the informed source said.

No official from the countries has confirmed the news report, but a Syrian official, who spoke on conditional anonymity, announced that the joint war game will be launched in Syria.

If this is true, Iran, Russia and China will help Assad crush the rebels under the guise of a joint exercise.

Syria is a Shiite/Sunni civil war, with Assad being Shiite, and al Queda and the Muslim Brotherhood being on the Sunni side (and being financed by Saudi interests).

We should stay out and grab some popcorn. This provides an incentive for the Saudis to flood the world with oil (to damage the Russian and Iranian economies).

Adventurism!

We cut our forces and look what happens.

We have half the Navy we had under Reagan.

What we’re doing is making it much more likely we’ll be involved in a World War in short order.

I'm sure who Mr. Lawrence Freeman is but here's more from him:

December 03, 2011 "RT" -- The situation in Syria is just a warm-up before a real confrontation, which will draw Russia and China into action, believes Lawrence Freeman from the Executive Intelligence Review magazine.

Russia lost Egypt, Iraq, Afghanistan and some smaller client countries over a 30-year period. If they lose Syria Iran may start to unravel.

My first thought was about the current Syrian civil war, rather than Israel. This would seem to be the way that those countries clean up the civil war for their mutual client, creating obligations in the region that they could then exploit for their mutual benefit.

I was thinking the same thing - this is a mobilization, not a war game.

As for Israel, Ezekiel says that the angels themselves would protect her once the Jews have returned to their homeland. The lands of the coast and the isles, they don’t fare well, apparently. Fire rains down from the sky on them.

Then the army of the North will come down to Isreal to take a great spoil (Nat gas, and other things?)

To borrow a strategy from Nathan Forrest, if we was to get there firstest with the mostest, it might change the outcome; especially since we already have men and equipment in the neighborhood.

Doubt our leadership has the balls though...

Wrong. In fact all of those parties are teaming against Al-Qaeda takeover of Syria and such a takeover, supported by US, is a real catastrophe for Israel.
