    If the hyper-aggressive Israelis are allowed to keep their WMD, the agreement for Syria to give up its singular deterrent amounts to an inevitable suicide. Why would Assad agree without some quid pro quo from Israel? Russia will not have its ships there forever and eventually Israel and the US will find some pretext to attack Syria for the purpose of regime change. Meanwhile, the West, spurred on by Israel, continues to arm the “rebels” with increasingly more sophisticated weapons. It’s beginning to appear Russia has thrown Syria under the bus. This is not a good deal. It defies logic, the US and Russia ignore the need to bring Israel’s massive chemical arsenal under International control, though this is the perfect moment to raise the issue.
