By RFE/RL's Azerbaijani Service
Iran's Fars news agency says security forces in Azerbaijan have arrested and jailed its correspondent in Baku.

Fars said the correspondent's house was raided on late on February 17 and he was detained without any specific charge.

The semi-official news agency said on its webpage that the arrest was part of an alleged anti-Iranian campaign in Azerbaijan.

RFE/RL quoted the brother of the arrested correspondent as saying that Anar Bayramov was detained and charged with possession of 3 grams of heroin.

Bayramov was also affiliated with Sahar TV, an Iranian Azeri-language television station that has been accused by Azerbaijani officials of interference in domestic affairs.

In other news from the Middle East: the two battleships that the Islamis Republic of Iran sent through the Suez Channel the other day have successfully arrived to the Syrian port of Tartus.
So, what we have here are (a) Russian, (b) Iranian battleships in Syria and (c) the US and Saudi Arabia pressuring the intl community into authorizing their invasion in this country. In other words, all the preconditions for the transformation of the Syrian crisis into the Third World War are in place - fasten your seat-belts, estimados señores!

I am not sure that Eugenio prediction will happen this time.
However, Iranians, issured by Russian global provocateur,
Lead, as during Persian betrail of Media UN by false-guide,
Of witchcraft of Chaldean Babilon and Susiana, dared tour.
Might be acceptable, but why provoke "Darius" World-wild?

Local ass-masters plot? Feel lonly for the "Macedonian"?
