They will never give up.
Apparently Israel will be picking the targets for the US to hit.
The Syrians have the world's largest stock of bio weapons and chemical weapons. God knows what else.
If we start degrading their air defenses and weaken them -- they may feel they are losing their deterrent with Israel. In which case -- it's use it or lose it.
Backed to the wall -- they will defend themselves with everything they have. Why is no one talking about this? It could get very ugly.
Prince Bander, the prince of darkness, is going around telling everyone that Syria won't do anything. They will sit there and take it.
This is just plain craziness. Bander is a war criminal. He is also implicated in 9/11.
Syrian doesn't have largest source of Bio/Chem Weapons in the world, that "honor" belongs to Russia and NK.
And Syria has been conquered and controlled by Romans, Persians, Mongols, Turks, French and number of other tribes and nation states. Get your history right.
