US Claims Enormous Iranian Militia Set Up in Syria

Published on 11 February 2013, by M. Tomazy.

The officials claim Iran’s secret militia has “as many as 50,000” fighters, calling it a “big operation” aimed at keeping fighters in Syria for the long term in case the Assad government is eventually ousted by the rebels.

“Big operation” is putting it mildly. NATO estimated the sum total of Taliban fighters in occupied Afghanistan at 25,000. Iran somehow is supposed to have create a force of twice that size in virtually no time, and without the benefit of it being a former government.

OF course, the US government's incontrovertible evidence for this appears to be... thoroughly non-existent.  And a memo to those in the bowels of power in DC: the kinds of lies about Saddam's weapons of mass destruction, used to generate any enthusiasm for the invasion and occupation of Iraq, will not work in this case, even for the most slow-witted Americans among us.
