Most of us know all too well that very few things escape into the general media from the Islamist Dictatorship that is Iran.
Which is why a recent admonition from a former Iranian president simply has to lead the Obama Regime and Congress into wondering why, exactly, the strongest Syrian government supporter, that being Iran, seems to want the US to attack Syria.
The short blip of a story appeared in Reuters today and had to leave many scratching their heads in confusion.
According to the Reuters post, a resident and highly-placed politician in the Iranian government seems to be admitting that the Syrian government did indeed gas its own people, even after numerous UN Officials have indicated that Al Qaeda rebels easily could have been the culprit.
Below is the Reuters story:
(Reuters) -Former Iranian President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said the Syrian government, a strong ally of Tehran, had carried out chemical weapons attacks against its own people, the semi-official Iranian Labour News Agency reported on Sunday.
"The people have been the target of chemical attacks by their own government and now they must also wait for an attack by foreigners," Rafsanjani said, according to ILNA.

Now, if Iran, a serial liar on the world stage, wishes for the US to stay out of the Syrian civil war conflict, which is predicated on whether or not the Syrian government gassed thousands of its civilians, why would an Iranian politico come out and admit that the Syrian government did, in fact, gas its own people?
This, in truth, should tell the Obama Regime and Congress everything else it needs to know about whether or not it might be wise to stand down in Syria.
Iran knows that any sort of US attack would further alienate the already embattled Obama Regime and US, while pushing the Mideast that much closer to an all-out conflagration. It's as if Iran is begging for the US to attack, which puts the US in nothing if not a "Rook and Pawn" position should it choose to carry out such a uselessly impotent offensive.
Remember, too, Iranian fundamentalists both await and believe that a legendary prophetic Islamist war leader, the 12th Imam, will only return when the world is in full chaos, and this could be the preceding keystone event that sparks the eventual chaos.
One other thing: News articles reporting a seeming oddity, which are less than 100 words long, typically stink of a government propaganda event, this one originating within the Iranian Government, notwithstanding.
