US Accuses Iran of Backing Syria: So What?

Iran's clerical fascist regime should never have been allowed to come to power more than three decades ago, and certainly should not be allowed to acquire atomic arms. But that doesn't mean that it does not have the right to supply (sell?) its ally, Syria, surveillance equipment and guns and ammunition. Given the West's support for an armed revolt in Syria--following the unnecessary NATO intervention in Libya on the side of Islamist-led rebels and the Obama administration's emboldening of the Muslim Brotherhood-backed rebellion in Egypt--there is something ridiculous about this story.
