With things so destabilised in Syria by evidently outside backed mercenaries who have no desire to allow any kind of peaceful diplomatic resolution to the Syrian constitution, Iran does not have the support that Syria could give it if America decided to get Israel into a war with them. This is all madness. I suppose the Americans think it's so far away from them it isn't important to the rest of the world what happens. All those weapons from Libya and probably some of those mercenaries have probably ended up in Syria.
I understood that Syria was a very tolerant multi faith country. There is a very strong Ancient Orthodox Christian Church and I don't think they have been persecuted.
I suppose most people would say why bother worrying about what happens around the world, but I do care. We all need stability, homes, purpose, and to see our families grow up in peace. To fight a war on any grounds just means there is somewhere in the mix, megalomaniacs who believe it is there divine right to wage war as a means to their end. I am tired of hearing of wars and uprisings. I wonder how this planet could be peaceful, and respectful of every race, and creed.
I am pleased that Russia and China aren't allowing the west to make resolutions about Iran and Syria. How this all works out I haven't a clue, but I pray there are peaceful negotiations, and that rebels and governments give themselves up to a peace process in all these countries. They need to forge new constitutions where everyone is heard, and has the opportunity to come to the table and work out solutions to problems, not fight over them.
Libya looks decimated, and there is no possibility of a democracy that everyone upholds. Their country is split and may end up becoming two countries. Meanwhile the west are carving profits out of them as they offer to rebuild and drill for their oil.
