What does Israel want us to do? Send boots on the ground to fight alongside the Muslim Brotherhood? They are safer with Assad in power, frankly. None of this makes any sense whatsoever - unless they are trying to point out how ineffective and ridiculous Obama’s threats are. And, frankly, that doesn’t help Israel either to taunt Obama.
Why does ANYONE want the US in Syria? Why not ask Russia to deal with it?

U.S. brushes off Iran-Iraq-Syria gas line

"The U.S. government said plans by Iran to build a natural gas pipeline through Iraq to Syria may run into problems with economic sanctions."
"Victoria Nuland, a spokeswoman for the U.S. State Department, brushed off the report, saying Washington has seen similar reports on the Iran-Iraq-Syria pipeline "six or seven or 10 or 15 times before, and it never seems to materialize."
"I would simply say that the construction of any kind of an Iranian-Syrian pipeline could potentially raise sanctions issues under U.S. law on either Iran or Syria, including for international entities who might decide to participate in it either by financing or by construction," she said.
Money is calling the tune. It always has.
