    What has that to do with the impossibility of Iran invading Israel?

    What's Syria going to do about Turkey? And the Kurds?

    I've been following this for like..4 years now. The Syrian Army are not the bad guys. They save towns from ISIS.

    Turkey is an official guarantor of the de-escalation zone of Idlib. Their presence in Idlib is officially approved by Damascus (except for one of the observation points). The other Turkish presences are not approved. Turkey will have to withdraw, it officially supports the territorial integrity of Syria.
    Unlike western media claims, the de-escalation zones are not there to be for ever. They are there to give "moderates" time to separate from Al-Qaeda and prepare for a political solution. The time will be up soon and the Turkish observation points will be obsolete.

    As for the Kurds, President Assad said he prefers negotiations. But he has other means, too. I guess, the Kurds will agree to a limited authority within the Syrian Arab Republic after negotiations.

    My attitude is that for the sake of having an independent country,
    all foreseeable scenarios must be analyzed.

    One doesn't get peace by neglecting the art of war, it also doesn't mean that alternativas to worst scenarios are not considered, or that they will occur in the first place.

    I mean the denial of the fact that there are no Iranian or Iranian-backed forces partaking. The Russians just confirmed it:

    MOSCOW, July 19./TASS/. There are no pro-Iranian armed units in the south of Syria, Russian Ambassador in Damascus Alexander Kinshchak told reporters on Thursday.

    I'm sure even Kinshchak doesn't believe the words he utters.
    The concerns were laid on the table, possible outcomes are being discussed.

    Trying to convince me not to use common sense is not a sign of a constructive exchange, definitely not a way to reach an understanding, it only raises more concern and distrust between the sides.

    You ignore that Israeli attacks would not benefit the Syrian offensive.

    "Israeli attacks" Capt. Blei? Israeli "attacks" are related ONLY
    to Syrian aggression. Are you blaming the kurds of attacks on Israel?
