The desperate efforts by Iran and Hizballah to save Assad prove the sad truth; Syria is critical to Iran's influence in Lebanon and the entire neighborhood. With Syria out of Iran's orbit, there will be no weapons to Hizballah and the organization will have to become a political party. Well, there was a chance for Israel (and the US) to pull Syria out of the Iran orbit, but that required returning the Golan so that peace with Israel can be made. A chance was missed. Well, the new Syrian regime will also demand the Golan and if the Right-wing stays in power, they will say no, and an AIPAC-dominated US will support this. The new rulers will turn to Iran again, so perhaps Iran and Hizballah have little to fear. Just rely on your real ally, Israel.
