Hi Cipora - good comments however I would suggest it should be looked at the opposite way - meaning, Iran and Hezbollah woul dbe nothing wuthout Syria - so the strategy shoud be to bring Syria into the peace camp, thereby cutting off the platform needed by Hezbollah and Iran. we know that the Syrians actually want peace, unlike Iran/Hezbo who want destruction, and Syria has a strong government capable of agreeing to a peace deal and making its people abide by it . They only turn to Iran because nobody else would have them, we succeeded in "isolating" them and this is the price. Give them an economic incentive (much cheaper than war) and a way to save face (some deal o nGolan and partial Kinneret coastal access) and yuo would solve many problems all at once.
