This is good news for the US. It has always been in our best interest as a sovereign nation to have secular leaders who can be negotiated with in power in the Middle East. We screwed up over the past 15 years deposing these secular leaders while assisting zealots who were trying to take over each country as a piece of the caliphate they're trying to rebuild. Nice to see Syria withstood the storm and stands strong. I wish the same could be said for Egypt...
