Why... why do they still pretend that sanctions work? Are they that dumb? Are they just hoping that we're that dumb? I mean... Hey, really.

Did sanctions topple Saddam? no, they entrenched him.
Have sanctions impacted Iran's Mullacracy? nope, they became firmly entrenched.
Do the embargoes on North Korea and Cuba hurt the Castro and Kim regimes? No, they entrenched them.
Does Israel's blockade of Gaza hurt Hamas? NO IT JUST MAKES THEM MORE ENTRENCHED!

I'll be honest, it's hard for me to really "take a side" here - Assad's consistently been the most intelligent and reasoned player in the region... but he's also an oppressive asshat against his own people. So... I guess my only point here is that sanctions don't work,

Don't Syria & Iran have a "mutual protection pact"? I swear I heard Iran announce that a few years ago.
Probably why we haven't already attacked Syria.

you're right as soon as the US or NATO strikes Syria , Iran must step in WW3 will start, since Iran always used Syria as backdoor to strike Israel

Step 1: Turkey boots on the groung "humanitarian grounds"
Step 2: Iran retaliates
Step 3: Nato-US takes out Iranian nuclear facilities "Stop a potential nuclear war in the region"
good stratigy but this is all before the first arrow falls.

In 1979 Vietnam had a defense pact with the USSR.

In 1979, the People's Republic of China launched an invasion of Vietnam. The USSR chose not to respond even though it was bound by treaty to protect Vietnam.

The point is, pacts and treaties don't guarantee anything.

Even if Iran did respond it would not be WW3 or anywhere close to world war. It would be a major regional conflict, on the scale of the first Gulf War, one that would lead to NATO sweeping en masse into the Middle East.
