Rev Guards Base Uncovered in Syria


I’ve been saying for some time that Syria is an Iranian colony, and that the defense pact the two signed several months ago was a serious matter. Now the Reform Party of Syria, which I trust, has just sent out the following:

New IRGC base near Homs

RPS News — The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), an Iranian government terrorist organization, is managing a new training base near the city of Homs located west of Syria and less than 50 km from Lebanon. The base is off-limits but intelligence delivered to RPS indicate that there is no Syrian presence at the base, which makes it a fully operational foreign base and the first of its kind in the country.

It is believed that the base is armed with the second generation of the Shahab-3 medium-range ballistic missiles (MRBM) with a range of 2,100km able to hit major metropolises in the Middle East including Israel.

Yes, just in time for the release of my new Iran book , but I would rather not read such stories, with an administration that clearly does not want to get serious about Iran. More on that later.
