Iranians and Hezbullah fighting for Assad in Syria

Here's yet another story that you look at and say that you kind of suspected all along. Wikileaks is reporting that Iranian Revolutionary Guards and Hezbullah terrorists are fighting in Syria on behalf of the Assad regime.
WikiLeaks revealed in its new documents that during last June thousands of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and members of Lebanese Hezbollah were fighting in Syria in support of Assad’s regime.

In a letter leaked from the “Four Stars for Strategic Information and Analysis” center, Iranian armed individuals and Hezbollah militants have implemented prompt execution warrants against Syrian soldiers who had refused to shoot at demonstrators. The “Four Stars” center quotes a source inside Hezbollah calling him ‘Hezbollah activist’ as saying that there are 3000 members of IRGC, 2000 Hezbollah militias and 300 people from “Amal Movement” in Syria. The source adds that 42 members of IRGC and 27 from Hezbollah were killed in Syria, and Syrian airplanes transfer Iran’s casualties to Tehran and lots of vehicles transfer Hezbollah casualties to Lebanon.
It's not clear to me whether this is June 2011 or June 2012.

Remember that meeting between Assad, Ahmadinejad and Nasrallah a couple of years ago? My guess is that although they never announced it, they entered into some sort of mutual defense pact. Another accomplishment of Obama's 'engagement' with Iran and Syria....
