it is being reported that iran syria and hezbollah will have a war council in teheran in the coming days. it is obvious that the obama administration's "engagement" policy has failed. iran has rebuffed all attempts at engagement with the obama administration. iran is continuing with its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. iran continues its policy of exporting terror through its proxies in the entire middle east. syria has given no indication whatever that it is willing to give up its defence pact with iran. syria has also made clear that it will not stop supporting terror organisations, in particular hezbollah and hamas. a review of the policy of engagement is crucial and urgent.
