    Well, current policies aren't working.

    Who is the common enemy in Syrias civil war? Isreal is not involved in it.

    A MOAB from 80,000 feet on top of Assad's castle would be my response, followed by a strong letter.

    The United States and Israel are the common enemy of everyone in the ME.

    All out invasion, or nothing are the only two options. We've seen what happens when we try to fight wars in a half-assed fashion. Iraq and Afghanistan could have been ces tou finis by 2005--2006 at the latest.

    That's a nice sentiment, but we're discussing events in the real world.

    Jordan and Egypt are at peace with isreal. Saudi Arabia has its own problems to attend to. All the other Arabic countries are too far away, not well armed enough to challenge isreal, or not even part of the Middle East at all.

    The only nations that openly want conflict with isreal are lebenon, Palestine, Iran, and Syria. And right now in the civil war in Syria, the common enemy of the people is the Assad regime.
