I understand the logic, but I still like your neutrality position. I think the key argument against your stance is what you mention as the iranian axis issue, isn't breaking that and hurting iran more important than taking a risk with an islamist syria that would be torn apart and weak anyways because of infighting and ethnic differences?

It is the short term priority but not giving Ankara a grand victory is the long term priority.
