    " it is believed that Syria, bellicose declarations notwithstanding, has no real interest in a direct clash, from which it will emerge battered." What a load of gobblegook. Who believes ? Who decides when Syria means what is says..in part of the article Harel takes it at its words and when it suits him not...without explaining why. "Has no real interest? " Wow what an analysis...it could be argued differently..but what the hell. WOuld Syria emerge battered ? Well, if we battled like we did in Southern Leb ...we would only play around for a few weeks and not do anything really damaging. So why not go to war with us ? After all..civilian life in Syria is not worth much to them right. This article is a load of unsupported opinions and assumptions...ending with the oh so emotive call for arms against any such "miscalculated" war as - costing a lot of money. Money well spent I'd say.
