    Simply because Syria had a chance, instead of asserting itself as a free nation, they backslide right into the axis of Tehran, with its two proxies Hamas and Hezbollah. Tremendous hope was pinned on Pres.Assad. Even Pres.Peres spoke of peace. Syria has become what it deserves, a client state of Russias new Navy and dances to the tune from the Ahmadinejad Tehran Pop Orchestra. Pity, then again, none of the Arab States actually like Syria. Somehow they seem to be outside the loop, its called a certain lack of trust, the question is, can Syria handle peace with Israel.? The answer is obvious,"No they cannot"! For a bloody rebellion will bring down the "Clan"! Just dancing away, seems to be the safest priority. A nice day to all.
