Washington (CNN) -- The U.S. State Department accuses Iran of helping the Syrian government's efforts to suppress protests that have taken place there in recent weeks.

"We believe that there is credible information that Iran is assisting Syria" in quelling the protesters, department spokesman Mark Toner said Thursday.

U.S. officials said the Iranian assistance includes gear used to suppress crowds, as well as equipment and technical advice for monitoring and blocking e-mail, cell phones, text messaging, and internet postings by and among activists.

Huddling together in desparate times. How cute indeed, watching khamenei, ahmadinezhad and assad, all dangling next to each other, with their mouth stuffed with stolen petro dollars.....
