Things that Show that Iran Is Syria
Usually, not many alliances are usually formed in the Arab and Islam countries, but these two countries have proven that they can form a lasting partnership. Since the beginning of 1979, these two nations have been in a partnership that has seen them grown in terms of their politics, economy and security levels. When you consider the manner in which both nations operate politically, you will realize that both have a dictatorial form of government and also one that likes operating independently, without the input of the opposition. A truth that needs to be known is that the manner in which these nations carry out their politics has cemented the relationship between them.
An example is the case where they both saw Iraq as a threat to their security levels and labeled it as a common enemy. They were worried that the war in Iraq would slowly penetrate their borders and they, therefore, had to put in strict measures to ensure that this did not happen. The lasting partnership that is present between the Iranian and the Syrian political systems represents a common goal and also the fact that these two are able to fight together as one.
It is through the formed partnership that they are able to achieve some of their set long-term goals, without finding the need to entertain foreign or domestic calls for them to change. The Syrian government became largely dependent on the Iranian government to supply it with political and also military resources that they needed, once the current ruler took office. The dependence resulted because the country was not able to make sure that they have a mutual and trustworthy alliance with other Arab countries.
It is during this overly dependent stage that the government officials from both parties came to an agreement that in case they had a common foe, they would always fight together to safeguard their security and other interests. Even though these countries have some differences, they have proven that they can work together. Whereas Iran is known for its revolutionary goals, Syria stands out as the epitome of secular nationalism among the Arab nations. Due to their differences with other nations, the countries have been slapped with some international bans.
Despite all this, they continue to work together due to the strong alliance that they have. During the war between Iran and Iraq, Syria helped Iran by supplying them with some of the resources that they needed whereas Iran has been helping the Syrian ruling party during its civil war. The fact that they have varied ideologies in terms of their interests in each other’s territory has ensured that they get to respect each other’s move, and not interfere with their plans.
