The corporatocracy that is called the US and much of the Western governments have much to profit from Syria - weapons sales, increasing debt from all surrounding nations, pharmaceutical supplies, etc... all at the expense of the taxpayer, not to mention the gross loss of human life on all sides of the conflict. Turning Syria into the next Iraq will be a huge cash-cow for the top 1%, in addition to destabilizing the region and promoting yet more fear here in Israel to keep the war-mongering politicians in power. It would be funny if it weren't so sad - I can only hope people will start to wake up and put the pieces of the puzzle together.
