Syria constantly used its press (at the behest of Moscow) to call Nassar and Hussein cowards for not confronting the "west" and Israel. Also, Syria was constantly shelling the Galilee. Meanwhile, Syria was the most cowardly of the lot, hiding behind Moscow's skirts. It is doubtful Nassar would have re-militarized the Sinai and kicked out the U.N., and closed the Gulf of Aqaba to Israeli shipping, if it hadn't been egged on by Syria. As it is, Nassar was bogged down in Yemen's war and didn't need the '67 war at all.
