Below the fold, my good friend David Gerstman analyzes Iran’s tactical and strategic position in Syria.
David and other analysts have come to the conclusion that Iran is taking a beating in Syria.
But a common mistake analysts make when viewing IslamoNazi movements—state and non-state players—is to judge them by Western standards.
This is a fatal mistake. It assumes that IslamoNazis make the same human calculations of gain and loss that we do.
And let us keep in mind, as does Gerstman, that the Obama-Kerry capitulation to Iran has made the IslamoNazis of Iran not just stronger and richer, but has guaranteed their quest for nuclear weapons.
Such an enemy is not easily deterred.
