In regards to Syria being only a step necessary to take in order to get to Iran, he is 100% correct. It was even mentioned a long time ago by then-General Wesley Clark, that seven countries in five years would be necessary to be toppled in order to keep the world’s next superpower from rising and de-throning the United States’ from its global leadership position. Iran is just the main prize in a larger game between the Soviets and the United States, whereas nearly the entire Middle East serves as a basket of proxy countries for both powers. The wars are absolutely coming as it’s now purely a matter of when and not if.
From the Russian propaganda outlet, Russia Today:
The outspoken leader of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDPR) has said that the crisis in Syria is just the next phase in the run up to an attack on Iran.
Zhirinovsky, accompanying State Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin on a visit to France, commented that Syria itself is“not really a point of interest for outside forces.”
What is of importance, he argued, is that Syria, where a militant opposition is engaged in a protracted fight against forces loyal to President Bashar Assad, serves as yet another “corridor into Iran.”
