It seems odd, that in view of all the aid going to the Syrian rebels from the West, Assad remains at the helm in Syria. Now Israel is pitching in, not without the approval of the U.S., but most likely at the insistence of the U.S. The U.S. recently asked Turkey and Jordan to intervene in its concern that the Assad regime may employ chemical weapons----Is this deja vu a la Iraq? No doubt the war is widening, but the scenario now unfolding in the region is capable of escalating beyond what anyone would desire. It seems we never learned not to play with fire.
