Who Benefits From A War Between The United States And Syria?

Someone wants to get the United States into a war with Syria very, very badly. Cui bono is an old Latin phrase that is still commonly used, and it roughly means “to whose benefit?” The key to figuring out who is really behind the push for war is to look at who will benefit from that war. If a full-blown war erupts between the United States and Syria, it will not be good for the United States, it will not be good for Israel, it will not be good for Syria, it will not be good for Iran and it will not be good for Hezbollah. The party that stands to benefit the most is Saudi Arabia, and they won’t even be doing any of the fighting. They have been pouring billions of dollars into the conflict in Syria, but so far they have not been successful in their attempts to overthrow the Assad regime. Now the Saudis are trying to play their trump card – the U.S. military.

Consider T. E. Lawrence of Arabia... you remember? Peter O'Toole? Lawrence united the Arabs momentarily, as a fighting front against the Nazis... or so most of us have been led to believe. But the Arab unity under Lawrence was far from complete, and was really only something superficial.

After a long time of sneaky finagling, some Arabs finally managed to get one of their own into the Presidency so that they might get the whole United Sates to fight on their side against all the other Arabs. So now, thanks to Obama (and Bush, to some extent) we're stuck in the middle of the Arab tribal feuds that have been going on, like, for 3000 years.
