Rumors of War - Persia

Israel’s airstrike on Syria spooks Middle East -
UPI reports: "Israeli warplanes carrying out airstrikes on a shipment of Iranian arms to Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas in Syria managed to evade Syrian air-defense missiles [...] There are likely to be further Israeli airstrikes against Hezbollah in Syria, reflecting deepening Israeli concerns that Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps and their Lebanese ally are establishing a new front on the divided Golan Heights from which to fight the Jewish state. These developments are increasing the chances of a miscalculation that could trigger a war that both sides insist they do not want."

Comment: People keep talking about the end of the Syria conflict as if that is some kind of answer to the instability of the region. Are we to believe that the Iranian ground forces operating one international border away from Israel are simply going to pick up and go home once the Islamic State is defeated?
