    Lots of phone calls and I have NO doubt they are talking with Obama.
    Right! I guess that's why Iran sent Revolutionary Gaurdsmen to support Assad.

    Ohhhh, is that it?

    What evidence do you have to suggest that they're just talking smack?

    Because Iran does it all the time.. Press TV says 15,000 US troops were in Benghazi.. Total BS..

    They do it ALL the time.

    I am not saying that things can't possibly go wrong, but the buzz is that Saudi, Turkey and Egypt have "sidelined" the US.. Brilliant, IMO..

    Crucial change in Iran’s stance on Syria

    Realisation that unlimited support for a doomed Al Assad will be a disaster has led Tehran to search for an exit from the quagmire with Egypt and Turkey’s help
    By Wadah Khanfar
    Published: 00:00 September 2, 2012

    A crucial shift is taking place in the Middle East towards the conflict in Syria. Egyptian President Mohammad Mursi’s call for Arab-Iranian-Turkish dialogue over the crisis and a safe transfer of power in Syria has been well received in Turkey and Iran. All these countries have a powerful interest in making such a dialogue work, which makes the chances of success far greater.

    The context is clear enough. The Syrian rebels have made major gains. The revolution moved to a new phase after the July 18 attack in Damascus, which took the lives of several top security officials, a huge morale boost to the Free Syrian Army (FSA). It has since tried to secure a number of Syrian border crossings with Turkey and Iraq, and its fighters also established a military presence in Damascus and Aleppo, two cities which had been under the absolute control of the regime.

    continued........

    No of course not-- where did you get that from my post?

    We've gotten some fairly detailed information about the type of IRGC troops that have been deployed to Syria, specifically troops from the Kurdish and Azeri provinces who have more direct experience in irregular and border warfare. I also strongly disagree with your Gulf News correspondent, I think Iran is not even close to throwing in the towel on Syria.

    In nearly 70 years I have learned to listen to those in the Arab world who don't say much.

    Please note that Adahminejahd and Bibi NEVER shut up....

    I work pretty exclusively in the Persian Gulf, specifically with Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, and Yemen with much of my work dealing with policy. I won't have my arguments rest on anecdotes mind you but I do talk to people as well and I've heard next to nothing that would convince me that the narrative you are painting is actually taking shape.
