Israel can't fight its own wars nor does it have the guts. Peres was saying recently that the burden of Iran should lie on the superpowers, meaning the USA. As in getting the USA to do its dirty work for them. Gutless they are.

There is already enough tension between Israel and Palestine at the moment, throw in Syria and the regional backlash could easily get out of hand.

Sounds like US, NATO is preparing to step in if Russia does fail in its leadership.
Since Russia vetoed the UN resolution they wont be invading Syria, so I dont see any ifs to if Russia will invade Syria, they were already clear they wont.
