Russia, Iran support Assad despite his use of WMD

NY Times:

Russia and Iran Condemn U.S. Strikes in Syria

Moscow said that Syria’s leader had not used chemical weapons and that the U.S. operation would hurt the Kremlin’s relations with Washington.
The Russian statement that Assad had not used chemical weapons is just not credible.  What this statement really implies is that they are on Assad's side no matter what he does.  There is no moral component to their support.
