WNU editor: I am always sceptical of these reports .... but I do know that there are tensions over war policy between Russia and Iran on Syria (Iran wants all out victory, while Russia prefers some form of agreement among most of the warring factions) .... and these differences have been more than evident in the past few months.

Iran would like to dominate the Middle East. Turkey has same goal but is so far a minor contender...meanwhile Saudis, who thought they were number one, caught up in Yemen...Not sure why Russia would have same goal as US, though.

Iran wants a land bridge to Lebanon through Iraq and Syria. Everyone knows this.

Iran want influence in Afghanistan.

Iran wants to defeat Israel.

Iran wants to defeat Saudi Arabia.

In the meantime would Iran lay the ground work to export Shia-ism into the former Soviet Union?

- Is Iran involved in Kazan, the Central Asian Republics or the Caucasus?

- If they were, by setting Iran back in Syria, they would have to devote more resourcesto Syria before movng on to other peojects.
