  •  My point is that Israel thinks Assad in power (0+ / 0-)

    benefits Israel.

    As the Stratfor analysis said:

    not to mention Israel actually quite likes Bashar being in power

    •  Assad would be better than al-Qaeda for Israel (0+ / 0-)

      What Israel really wants is for the conflict to go on until Syria is knocked back to the dark ages or split into ineffective parts.

      I suspect this is also what the US government wants if it can't get a favorable government installed. This modus operandi has been the hallmark of American interventions all around the world - if you can't control it, destabilize it.

      Assad and al-Qaeda killing each other - it's a win-win for Israel and US/NATO.
