But without crossing those red lines it might be possible for Washington to wean Damascus away from its alliance of convenience with Tehran. Syria and Iran are not natural or inevitable allies. Washington’s clumsy attempts to ostracize both regimes have managed to tighten their mutual embrace." Quotes-end.png
