more paranoid ramblings
this btw coincided with Iran removing its ambassador to the UK, apparently because he was pragmatic and reasonable.
Part of a "clean house" sweep firing 40 Iranian ambassdors and consuls and replacing them with hardliners. Yay.
Unconfirmed anecdotal comments by someone who is current and informed boiled down to "Syria? No. They need those for Iran."
Of course anyone who really knew would not be able to tell me.
