U.S. sees increased Iran involvement in Syria

By Barbara Starr

The United States sees increasing involvement by and military aid from Iran in the attacks against opposition to the Syrian regime, according to several Obama administration officials.

They believe Iran wants to do whatever it can to ensure the survival of the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, one of Tehran's closest allies.

"The aid from Iran is absolutely on the rise and is of very real concern," a U.S. official told CNN. "Tehran has supplied equipment, weapons and technical assistance - notably computer monitoring tools - to help suppress unrest."

This includes providing equipment to monitor communications of opposition groups. Iranian officials have continued to travel to Damascus to deliver the aid, the official said.

"Iran's relationship with Syria is deep, and the motivations for maintaining those ties are solid and pragmatic. For one, Iran does not want to see AQI (al Qaeda in Iraq) gain a foothold in Syria, the official told CNN.

A second U.S. official told CNN the assistance includes money and training, as well as weapons and riot gear.

Neither of the officials would be identified due to the sensitive nature of the intelligence information.

Syria's military has been reduced only slightly by defections to the opposition, U.S. official say. The latest U.S assessment is that as many as 10,000 Syrian troops may have defected, but that is only a fraction of Syria's more than 600,000-man active duty and reserve force.

    Отголосок на сей вопрос может показаться
    крайне несложным: естественно же, на
    том web-сайте, какой советует это в целом сделать.
    В случае все точно просто
    с этой стороны и ощутимо проблематичнее, нежели показалось,
    с иной.
    Прежде просто-напросто надо делать выбор онлайн-ресурсы вместе с
    отличной подборкой порно – все это дает возможность обычно предпочитать
    те видео, то или иное заводит или какое-либо
    есть желание глянуть. В такой мере что в случае, если на интернет-ресурсе просто-напросто пару десятков видео роликов,
    в таком случае вероятнее всего-навсего
    надолго этого ни в коем случае не хватает.

    В равной мере довольно имеет большое значение смотреть статистику апдейтов – они сегодня
    должны существовать очень частыми, в совершенстве – каждодневными.

    Это теперь гарантирует юзеру приятный досуг или заявляет о таком, что верхи интернет-ресурса воистину о нем беспокоится,
    как будто беспокоит и еще о личных юзерах.

    Особенно, предпочитая, где рассматривать
    порно в онлайне, нужно созерцать и еще
    дополнительно на стилевое многообразие.
    Это конечно все-таки отнюдь не
    индивидуальная подборка, т.к. что там
    следует стать представлено все, что только лишь
    можно конечно для себя изобразить – и еще,
    естественно же, то, что представить бесполезно.
