We do not have a dog in this fight. The current ruler of Syria is a totalitarian
dictator. The rebels are Islamic fundamentalists. Neither side is likely to be
friendly to the U.S. The best thing that could happen is that they keep on
fighting ad infinitum. That would keep them focused internally rather than
threatening Israel. The only danger here is that the war spills over into
Israel. But Israel is perfectly capable of handling their own security relative
to Syria. If they want to fight or work it out, that is their business. So, this
is a great opportunity to keep our noses out of others people's fights.
