Thanks to the tireless efforts of libertarians, art majors, paleoconservatives, and other True Patriots, we are all well aware of how Israel, neocons, Zionists, and other Jews plot to have the United States do their bidding in the world.
So, please pay no attention to what the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported last week:

At a strategic-dialogue meeting this week among senior officials, Israel laid out for the United States three scenarios if Bashar Assad is toppled: chaos, an Islamist regime or another strongman from Assad’s minority Alawite sect. Israel fears all those options, saying Assad provides a measure of stability.
U.S. officials told their Israeli counterparts that toppling Assad could be “transformative” and dismissed concerns about an Islamist regime taking his place.

Remember. When faced with a choice between fact and legend, print the legend.
