    Syria wants peace, but it wants a hand in nastiness in Lebabon and Gaza. US wants peace, but it doesn't want Israel to negotiate with Syria. Israel wants whatever offers security and profit. I think Syria is the connector from Iran to Hamas and Hezbollah, but it plays a coy game of "give us back the Golan Heights and we will play nice." I don't think Israel or USA wants to put that offer to the test. So should there be an effort for peace, or indifference? It's hard to ignore the potential benefits of peace among Israel, Syria, and Lebanon, but is anybody making sincere offers? If Assad is fishing for a peace bribe, I don't know who is ready to fund it.
