Where Russian and Iranian Aircraft Carriers Clash

Last week, the Tehran daily Kayhan, believed to reflect the views of “Supreme Guide” Ali Khamenei offered its readers a front-page treat.

It claimed that Arabs “are clamoring for statues of General Qassem Suleimani to be installed in Baghdad, Damascus and Beirut, cities that he has saved from ISIS.”

The claim came hot on the heels of the Sochi meeting in which Russian President Vladimir Putin officially asserted his control over the Syrian dossier, at least as far as one side of that tragedy is concerned.

Did the mullahs want to contest Putin’s role as “savior of Syria” by advancing an even bigger claim on behalf of Soleimani, known in Tehran as “The Selfie General”?

It is almost certain that regardless of what happens next in Syria, the mullahs of Tehran are unlikely to grab the leading role in shaping that nation’s future. Besides Russia there are several other major players in Syria who won’t welcome the take-over bid from Tehran. So, there is no chance of a Soleimani statue in Damascus anytime soon.
