It should surprise no one to hear that Syria is the proxy of Iran. Surprisingly, Iran has just officially acknowledged this.

BEIRUT (AP) — Issuing Tehran’s strongest warning to date, a top Iranian official said Saturday that any attack on Syria would be deemed an attack on Iran, a sign that it will do all it can to protect embattled Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Ali Akbar Velayati, an aide to Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, made his comments as Syrian troops conducted offensive air raids against rebels and discovered a trio of tunnels they were using to smuggle weapons in their fight to topple Assad.
The corollary is that Iran is now responsible for all actions by the Assad regime in Syria and beyond. The Consequence is that they are accountable for Assad’s actions.
And he’s already used WMD against the rebels.
