    If you want Syria to play ball, then everybody knows what they want. They want the Golan Height back. Otherwise I'm afraid you will have to do this without without them or join Dichter's World and attack. A full blown war is just one mistake away and after having ticked off 1 Billion Chinese, by taking an arrogant stand when killing one of their UNIFIL observer, Isreal seem capable of making mistake after mistake, so that isn't an unlikely outcome. Russia has been transporting arms to Syria for quite some time now and they are better prepared than the Hizbullah ever was. An attack on Syria would then place the Muslims on one side with the NAM countries(114), Russia and China against the US with the EU on the side line. The OIL weapon would be their first option and the EU would understand that rather soon and not join any American effort to strike. It's the Hell Scenario and it is, as I said, just a mistake away.
