I wanted to add something. I had a conversation with an Arab Syrian friend of mine who said that the people of Syria do not support Iran, so if Assad
is toppled Iran would be left without an ally with whom they have a defense pact. Also he added that Israel does not want Assad toppled because only
because of his regime Israel and Syria has peace eventhough Israel sits on parts of Syrian territory. He said if he is toppled and the popular peoples
party comes into power soon they will "create problems for Israel" this was something new for me, the Israeli aspect, got me thinking, is this one
reason why the NATO intervention is stalling.
