Here we go. With a Syrian attack against Israel, the international community would distracted from Iran, is trying to gain nuclear power, and who is also a close ally of Syria. With a Syrian attack, Israel would be attacked simultaneously by Palestinians and by the proxies from Lebanon, further widening the conflict, and further gaping the international community from Irans future goals, the destruction of Israel. Any war with Lebanon will lead to the return of the Golan Heights to Syria, thus endangering the Security of Israel, and leaving Israel at the palms of the Arabs States, or a complete march of Israeli soldier to the outskirts of Damascus, thus worsening the crisis. Do you see a picture here. Its def not a picasso.
