    This is without doubt the absolute truth. Iran funds, trains and supplies Syria, Hezbollah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Syria made a huge mistake when it allied itself with Iran in 1980. A country like Syria should have remained neutral, and thus should have kept its options open. Now, Iran, led by fanatics, is an albatross around Syria's neck. Syria would do well to follow the example of Lybia, a country that until just recently was a state sponsor of terror, and as such, a direct threat to European countries. Lybia has now given up on terror, and hopefully it will keep its word, and as a result has begun to be integrated into the world community. Syria has much to gain by giving up terror, giving up its alliance with fanatical Iran, and instead, following the Lybian example. Syria is allowing itself to be blindsided by Iranian money and threats. Syria is not playing a very smart game.
