Bashar al-Assad has completely reversed the direction of the Syrian "war" by using Russian weapons and technology and the Lebanese Hezbollah troops and weapons. As usual, we stood by and let this happen. The Muslim Brotherhood joined the rebels in retaliation, and are now an influence on that side.
Where are we left when Assad allows the Russians to "occupy" the Golan Heights, as they threatened? To date, President Barack Obama has twice before closed his eyes to critical situations in the Middle East and allowed Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood to gain control.
As John Wolf says, "What is the end game?" If one expects the UN to do anything to aid Israel and calm the situation, then I would also love to sell you the often sold bridge in Brooklyn.
