With Russian and Chinese backing, Iran continues to play tough
The two countries do not seem to be budging in their opposition to any intervention in Syria, despite the daily reports of new massacres. Iran seems to be betting on receiving the same level of backing.
Iran is certainly acting very confident all of a sudden. Yesterday it's envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency was accusing the IAEA of being a subcontractor for the CIA and Mossad, today they are accusing the august personage of the European Union's foreign policy chief, Baroness Catherine Ashton of being a ditherer. No less.
