    Assad's father kept long range rockets from hezbollah and kept distance from iran. But assad jr took over and allowed iran to use syria to send weapons to iran. Planes fly from iran to syria to hezbollah. Assad jr was never supposed to be the leader but his brother who was trained in the military died in a car accident. Assad Jr kept close ties with hezbollah and bragged after the 2006 that he had built up their bunkers and their system. Assad Jr said even if there was a peace the people could still be against israel and israel still might not survive. Iran said the golan would be a victory for them too. Assad Jr and Iran had a missile conference with hezbollah and islamic jihad where they bashed the u.s and israel and the u.s said nothing. Assad Jr sent a rep to rush down to sudan after bashir was indicted by the world court. Assad and iran use sudan to get weapons from iran to gaza for hamas. Assad's paper has praised suicide bombings in israel and he hosts groups like islamic jihad. Assad is a dictator that has given the mullahs in iran access to his country religiously as well. Assad jr is a awful leader and got his position because he was a son unlike his father. Peace with him is worthless. Kerry praises despots like assad and bashes mubarak. Assad's secret police is far worse than anything under mubarak.
