Isn't Israel winning as well ?

Reader comment on item: Scoring the Syria Deal
in response to reader comment: A Somewhat Different Scoring

Put it this way: The war in Syria will go on for a long time, and Obama's intervention will not happen. This evens the sides who each have their supporters and their soldiers : and will attrit each other at massive costs in lives... This is the Arab Winter, and as things get worse this condition will proliferate into Iraq, then perhaps Jordan.

The break up of Syria, the collapse of the Sykes Picot deal of 1919, will produce a range of waring cantons, and will mean the end of nationalism as an Arab phenomenum, which over rode tribal loyalties under despotic governments of the second half of the 2Oth century.

The creation of a Kurdish nation will follow, allied to Israel, and controlling large oil reserves (those of northern Iraq and eastern Syria already being known. This will put massive pressure on Turkey, under a MB government particularly (since the conflict with the Kurds is partly a conflict of religion).

Seems to me that Israel will have no viable enemies in the Arab Middle East...... at zero cost.
