The Golan is a 'strategic high ground' as much as the former Gaza settlements. I can't believe that there are still people that believe this security nonsense. In modern warfare the missles just fly over it. What does that 'strategic high ground' help in case of a war with Iran? The opposite is the case - it makes it easier for Iran to target northern cities since not in direct proximity to Syrian population.
