Role of Iran

Attention, rightly, is on the current social revolts - Israel being the latest. However, the repression in Syria continues. I was interested to read Iran's alleged role in this in the article linkled below (mainly about Iran's influence in Iraq, also interersting). Obviously one must question the motives behind such an article: who caused this information to be placed? Whose appetites does it serve? etc etc. Anyway, for information...
