regimes like the syrian regime or even organization like hizbulla wants israel to attack syria or lebanon so they can group people around them. bombing syria by israel at this time will be Assad' biggest chance to regroup the syrian people around him. moreover, israel will not only need to worry about the chemical weapons but also about the the syrian ballistic missiles and another 40 thousand missile carried by hizbulla.
