The basic scheme is to weaken Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, and democracy in the middle east in favor of dictatorships, monarchies, Israel, and 'stability.'

But it won't work that way. Hamas and Hezbollah know that political gamesmanship can wield as much force as military action. Israel's leadership by comparison is immature. And Turkey is engaging Israel not supporting it. Assad is trying to hold on, but better for the Syrian dictatorship to fail slowly. The Saudis as well. Egypt can move faster. Iran of course even more quickly. But the losers in the long run will be the US, the Saudis, the dictators and the Israelis.
The danger in the middle east comes from the Saudis, the Israelis and the US. Of the three the US is the one capable of playing the game and accepting defeat like an adult. That's the change.
