The Syrian Solution is a US Envoy?

The US and Israel has just discovered that Syria has been supplying scud missiles to Hezbollah. One way to prevent this in the future according to some officials in Washington is for the US to put an envoy to Syria thereby improving relations.

The transfer of Scud missiles to Hezbollah from Syria will not prevent the reassignment of a US ambassador to Damascus, and even proves that such an authority figure is needed there...

It seems that such solutions don't really get to the heart of the matter and shows a rather lack of understanding that these events happen because the two partners here are proxies of Iran and would want to obliterate Israel and then the United States. The little and great satans respectively in the eyes of radical Muslims.

Sometimes sectors in this society are so engulfed in their secularism that their eyes are blinded by the truth behind them.
