America's interest in Syria is Israel
If Syria falls apart, our life will change - in the short run of course. That's why the United States is in no hurry to intervene. It is not interested in Syria's future, nor in the ancient European hypocrisy.
Like the joke about the feudal land owners - "you beat my Jew and I'll beat yours" - a bloody war between Iran and Saudi Arabia and Qatar is being waged in Syria, while we remain horrified by the scenes (which are apparently abridged; Arab media, the chief source of the horrific images, do not show the massacres in the Alawite regions. )
