FILE-- In this Tuesday, June 26, 2007, file photo, Iranian Rabe'e Naghizadeh, a victim of chemical attack during the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war, talks about her experience at the Zardeh village, Iran. For more than a generation, Iranian newspapers regularly post notices: Another veteran of the 1980s' war with Iraq has died of complications from exposure to chemical weapons from Saddam Hussein's arsenal. The claims now that Iran's Syrian allies used similar battlefield tactics, including possibly unleashing sarin gas, forced Tehran's leaders into perhaps their most difficult juncture of the nearly 30-month Syrian civil war: How much to stick by Bashar Assad if the Western allegations are backed by U.N. inspection teams.
