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.
