Striking at Syria's military for a roadside bomb would make sense if somehow it could be shown that such an action on the part of the Syrian government would benefit from such an act. With the US/NATO/Arab gulf sheiks already undermining Damascus, is it reasonable to believe that Bashar al-Asad would take on Israel? With the Syrian army already spread thin against al-Qaeda, ISIS, and dozens of other rebel groups, does it make sense that they would add Israel's military to the fighting? Or would it be in the interest of the rebels and the cabal of its foreign supporters to have Israel intervene and topple Asad--something that the rebels are unable to do? Cui bono?
