No one can say that there are not state players involved in terrorism. The weapons trail tells the story. Iran is terror central and Syria is Iran?s little cousin. But the scope of terrorism being used as a foreign policy tool has paid of for Iran and Syria because the scope of terrorism is getting larger because of vacillating US foreign policy; not offending anyone seems to be the new US policy. Sending an ambassador to Syria is useless; because it is viewed as a sign of growing American weakness. The end game for the Islamic revolution is the destruction of Israel. Anything the West does at this juncture is useless and a waste of time.
