“The neocons are furious that for all intents and purposes, the Syrian Arab spring is over, the partitioning of Syria is over, Syrians can rebuild their country.”
My question is what was wrong with Syria before we intervened in 2011 under Obola and the Witch and tried to overthrow the Assad government. Even with Russian involvement, it didn’t seem to be doing much harm to either Israel or the US. At worst, it was a slightly irritating piss ant. All we ended up with was an ISIS horror we had to spend money and lives to get rid of. Looks like it’s a good thing to have the Russians in where we were and us out.

Same question for Libya under Ghaddafi, and a few others.
Where do you think we and Israel finally caught the founding member of Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah 2nd in command Imad Mugniyeh, the guy responsible for killing hundreds of US Marines, for torturing to death CIA station chief William Buckley, the guy responsible for assorted embassy bombings including in the Americas, where he established Hezbollah in the Americas to work with the drug cartels? The United States indicted Mughniyeh the 1985 hijacking of TWA Flight 847, in which he tortured and murdered the U.S. Navy personnel Robert Stethem, who Mughniyeh and his men tortured for hours, before killing him and dumping his body onto the airport tarmac. He was also involved in the bombing of Khobar Towers.
Fate caught up to him in Damascus, Syria on February 12, 2008, where he lived with his Iranian wife, as he strolled by a car after he left a meeting with Syrian generals.
