There’s a rumor going around that the Syrian civil war is finally winding down and that the Baathist government is nearing its goal of driving out thousands of ISIS-Al Qaeda head-choppers financed and supplied – directly or indirectly – by the U.S., Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and the other Persian Gulf oil monarchies.
It would be good news if true. But most likely it’s not. While one stage in the Syrian conflict is coming to an end, another is beginning, and this time the results could be even worse.
The reason is Israel, until now the odd man in the latest Mideast wars. Despite intervening sporadically on the rebel side in Syria, the Jewish state generally held itself aloof from the conflict in the belief that events were breaking its way regardless of whether it stepped in or not. After all, why go to war when your enemies are doing a fine job of tearing each other apart on their own?
You can read the rest @
Are Israel's enemies really "tearing each other apart on their own"?
Isn't it the case that the US, Saudi Arabia, and their minions have CAUSED and FINANCED this whole mess at least in part for the benefit of Israel?
Frankly, the only party for whom I have ANY sympathy in this whole mess is the Syrians. Their only crime is to have been a sovereign country standing in the way of Israel's aspirations in the region.
Oh ... and having water resources which Israel wants to steal. Now that the region has been depopulated, the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers can be diverted to quench the thirst of Israeli children.
