Syrian Situation=Pretty Simple
It's about geo-political economics. Please pardon my huge edit of this, my original post, I had the specifics wrong.
Qatar wants to run a huge LNG pipe-line from Qatar, through Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Syria, to Turkey. This would crush the Russian LNG industry that is the leading supplier of LNG to Europe.
So, Assad, being a Russian ally and not signing to allow the pipeline through his country, has to go.
Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus (519 BC – 430 BC) Power should only be given to those that want it least.
