The USA could be a good catalyst in the world but it isn't. It is not a fair agent in the Israeli Palestinian issue. It unfairly attacked Iraq. It backed the coup against Venezuela. It backed a coup to install the Shah of Iran. It has consistently been an agent of evil. It is up the the US to prove that it deserves the right to befriend Syria. Maybe a start is to insist that Israel get out of the Golan. Maybe then it can start to be a fair player in the region.
