Five Iranians Kidnaped in Homs, Syria

The Iranian embassy in Damascus announced today that five Iranians have been kidnapped in the Syrian city of Homs, the epicenter of the uprising in the country. The embassy has demanded their immediate release.

“The five were kidnapped on Wednesday at 0630 a.m. while heading to their work place .We demand their immediate release,” said the statement issued by the embassy in Damascus [Mehr News Agency, 21 December].

Syria’s state news agency SANA earlier today had identified the kidnapped Iranian as engineers who along with three other foreign technicians disappeared while heading to their work at a power plant in Homs province.

Iran is the closest regional ally of the faltering Syrian government. It was not clear, however, if the relations between the two countries were a factor in today's kidnappings.

~~~~What do they hope to achieve from this?~~~~~

possibly demonstrating that there are a heck of a lot of iranian "technicians and advisors" working with the Syrian security goons and up to their necks in aiding the goons in the killings and torturing.

or just maybe because the Syrian people really hate the Iranian theocracy and all the bs that the iranian government puts out through their state-run propaganda arm.

here's the ever-unreliable PRESS-TV talking today about how Syrians love Bashir and esteem the Syrian army that's involved in slaughter of the Syrian citizenry.

For your information we are Iranian and Iranians don't want this rotten terrorist regime to govern our land so that dirt bags could come on this site and accuse us of being "Zionist".
But the truth is you people are international Islamist and have no country but wish the destruction of host countries.
