Reader comment on item: Support Assad

Submitted by sara (United States), Apr 12, 2013 at 21:05

I don't see a positive outcome scenario. Either the MB jihadists overturn the govt, launching another Islamist state which is right on Israel's doorstep (and will then work in tandem one assumes with the MB in Egypt), or an Iranian proxy state (albeit with a much weakened Assad) right on Israel's doorstep.

Neither scenario seems to be very encouraging.
