    Iranian Warships Leave Syria

    Two Iranian warships that docked in a Syrian port as a senior Iranian lawmaker denounced American calls for arming the Syrian opposition were reported on Tuesday to have left the Mediterranean, sailing south through the Suez Canal toward the Red Sea.

    State media in Iran quoted the defense minister, Brig. Gen. Ahmad Vahidi, as saying the country would continue to “beef up” its presence in international waters.

    It was not clear whether the vessels unloaded cargo or had docked in the port as a symbolic display of Iranian support for Syria, a critical regional ally whose government it has supported against the uprising that started in March 2011.

    It seems that dropping off cargo is the most likely...rockets for Hezbollah?

    It would be great if they fell into the hands of the opposition. In any case, most of Iran's arms intended for Hezbollah probably make their way through Syria.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Right. I wonder if moving weapons through Syria is harder now...I mean either side of their civil war could commander them for use in their own country. If nothing else the news is noteworthy for them leaving. It could have all just been an exercise I suppose.

    I would think they are arms or weapons. Hezbollah is in Syria and Jordan. Funny they don't mention them to much while this civil war is going on in Syria.

    I meant even though he is being sarcastic that does seem to be the import of some peoples views on the subject.
