'Heroic' Iran, 'resistive' Syria behind Sandy, pro-Assad group claims

By Saad Abedine

When it comes to natural disasters, the divide between assumption and reality can be stark. Or downright absurd.

Hours after Superstorm Sandy howled its way through the East Coast this week, unleashing a fatal trail of destruction, global reactions included outpouring of sympathy and support.

But not in Syria, where some pro-government supporters welcomed the superstorm when it hit Monday, claiming the natural disaster is the result of high-tech secret engineering.

The superstorm killed dozens across the U.S. East Coast as it ravaged the region with heavy rains, snow and flooding. Millions remain without power as it swirls north.

"Sources confirmed to us that Hurricane Sandy that is slamming the U.S. was set off by highly advanced technologies developed by the heroic Iranian regime that supports the resistance, with coordination of our resistive Syrian regime," pro-government group News Network of the Syrian Armed Forces said in a Facebook posting.

      Gee Jim, are you some kind of atheistic Tea Partier? There just could be something to this. Or current policies toward Syria have been most Unchristian as Hilary Clinton keeps on hollering for "regime change" plus our aiding and abetting these so-called "rebels" over there.
