“Syria is burning,” why is the US on the sideline? A democratic Syria means that Iran’s influence in the Mid East will dwindle!

“Syria is burning,” why is the US on the sideline, when it could weaken Iran’s influence in the Mid East?

Under Assad, Syria is indeed under Iran’s influence. Add to that, Iraq’s sympathy (as was obvious by its vote in the Arab League regarding Syria’s membership,) especially that Syria is a key to the future of the Middle East, and avoiding action in Syria, is a dangerous posture for the US to maintain.

When Syria falls Iran’s influence in the Middle East will dwindle; Hamas and Hezbollah will be weakened, and the balance of power will drastically change.

You may wish to note that after Syria, Jordan fate is not going to be very different. Jordan, an artificial (an illegal British creation) Monarchy, a country with an extremely large Palestinian population (Jordanians are all originally “Palestinians,”) will likely soon follow the Mid East Arab domino of ridding itself of autocracies, and moving toward democratization.

Unless it’s due to oil, it is difficult to understand why the United states, and the EU helped the Libyan uprising, and is failing to help a legitimate revolt in Syria.
