If you were honestly concerned about the people in Syria, you wouldn't offer them an "umbrella of the United States" after another chapter of war, but you'd support diplomatic efforts between the warring parties, for example in Geneva.

If Israel is only concerned about some territorial annexations, it can also stay away.
