Iran has been backing Damascus since the beginning of the Syrian civil uprising, some four months ago. Tehran has provided security and propaganda assistance, accusing the US and the West of attempting to overthrow the Assad regime under the guise of a false ‘Arab Spring’, according to IDF Lt. Col (ret.) Michael Segall, an expert on strategic issues with a focus on Iran and terrorism and a senior analyst at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.
In a position paper written for the center, he described how Iran is taking advantage of the ‘Arab Spring’, or the ‘Islamic awakening’ to disseminate the Islamic revolution ideologies of Ayatollah Khomeini to the Arab world in upheaval.

Iran: America Too Depleted to Attack Even if We Make the Bomb
The Obama administration has criticized the Iranian regime and its policies while the United States and other countries have put tough sanctions on Iran. The question remains, however, how the Iranian rulers perceive the situation. In their speeches and writings, they argue that America is weak and crumbling. This is, in part, propaganda, but to a considerable degree it is also clear that they believe this to be true. An example of this is an article that has just appeared on Gerdab, a website run by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, which concludes that America is so tired from being involved in so many wars that even if Iran makes an atomic bomb it will not attack Iran, nor will it allow Israel to take such action.

Liberals Launch Christian Witch Trials
Break out the pitchforks and light the torches! The leftist media is in the midst of launching a modern day version of the Salem Witch Trials. Except this time the target isn't those who blaspheme against the Christian religion, but rather those who practice it. The inquisition began almost two weeks ago when Diane Sawyer and her ABC World News Tonight team christened a very provocative and alarming "investigation" into the beliefs of Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann and her husband, Dr. Marcus Bachmann.
