    This dispute with Turkey will not affect the region as a whole it will affect relations with Turkey and Israel nobody else. Assads problem is that when Turkey was SUPPOSEDLY mediating all the were doing was telling Olmert Assads right if he wants the Golan & Kineret waters then give it to him. Assad had an ally fighting his cause. Now Turkey is not on good terms with Israel and not being asked to supposedly mediate it means Assad has no friends to help him. Whilst Obama might be an ally to the arabs right now he is preoccupied with the palestinians to worry about the Syrian front and probably will not have the time to start pushing that before the US election which there is a good chance he may lose now his messianic image is gone and he has lost alot of his popularity and Assad is worried that Obama will lose and be replaced by a more Israel friendly president. The decision not to respond to the bombing of the reactor didn't show he was a good leader it showed that he was not going to see his armed forces smashed and humiliated over 1 incident where there would have been no reward for him other than being able to say hey guys I fought back. Syria might be smashed but I can stand proud and say I had the courage to fight Israel.... Assad is not so stupid that he will start a war which will not actually have any potential gains for him if he won that though does not make him a responsible leader or a peace maker. The only thing Assad knows how to do with any degree of responsibility is support terror. Please
