They are wrong. These alliances are determined by geo-political factors and the hostile policy of the US and Israel, not by the whim of the rulers. Even a if the new ruler in Syria is to the “liking” of the West, he will have to be irresponsible to scuttle the Iranian alliance. There may be a period of uncertainty as the new rulers settle in their seats, but eventually the alliances will continue, maybe with some cosmetic changes. Look at Erdogan. He is practically an American lapdog but refuses to take sides against Iran.
