you might look more to Lebanon,
the USA sure doesn't want it to fall into Hezbollahs' & the Islamic Revolutions hands, they are only a 10% faction in the government now
but its most likely that the US is attempting to have Hezbollah, Hamas, and the probable influx of 'Basij' , soon? to be sent by Iran to carry on
campaigns towards Israel...all declared 'Terrorists' by the world.
it gets complicated, but the tactic is to force small but resource consuming war and people killing engagements by Iran, all over the region->
which will sap the Iranian Islamic Revolution of the power, energy, and political/economic capital to wage wars & proceed with their atomic ambitions
at the same time. a rope-a-dope tactic, using Lebanon as one of the fight rings (since Lebanon was once more tolerant of western ideas)
just a thought...
