The same has happened when the West and Israel menaced the Iranian regime. You want to get rid of them; you better act as if you loved Assad and Ahmadinejad.
As for Morsi, it was normal that he attacks Assad because he wants to replace him with be the Syrian Moslem Brothers, while the Saudis hope he will be replaced by the Salafis, all of them Moslem extremists. Are they better democrats than the Baath party? We will see; but in the meantime, the West is dining with the devil and it better use a very, very long spoon, especially that Russia, China and Iran are ready to go to war for their allies in Syria.
What do you think will happen then to Lebanon and Israel and all other Syrian neighbors? What will happen to the price of oil and the world recession? All these consequences are nothing compared to a possible nuclear war. Is the West really using a sufficiently long spoon?
