Syria is in no hurry to make peace with israel. it has lost the golan for nearly 50 years but has not forgotten it. Syria can afford to wait another 50. many things may change within 50 years. Israel may unilaterally remove itself from the golan and make peace with palestinians. Another scenario shows a defiant israel unwilling to return any land for the sake of peace with all of the financial burdens it implies. Military spending will continue to spiral to a point that purhaps even the u.s congress will not be able to approve, let alone pay for. Perhaps after another decade of stalemate, several countries will decide to boycott the israeli economy altogether causing its stubborn status quo solution to become extremely costly. Meanwhile, so long as syria does not act irrationally (launch a direct assault upon israeli forces) it can concievably wait until more favorable conditions for peace arise...
