That actually making any progress in Syria on the ones that we don't approval.
But despite the changes one thing stays the same and that is rush out refusing to abandon president Bashar Al -- It's a long time that Middle East ally.

She's the Fox News national security analyst and she is here to bring it all together for thank you for joining us some humor just in the region what she did it.
-- I was on the Golan Heights two days ago right about that looking down at the town.
Where the Syrian army is fighting the Syrian rebels I've got to tell you haven't this is the biggest mass I have seen in my professional life.
Mean it is now this has a proxy war which has the potential.
A spelling that not into the entire region.
But also drawing all the world powers and as well and that's similar to what John McCain has been saying all along that the -- not humanitarian crisis in this is potentially international crisis it is but I'm not sure what the answer to -- is it's no good answer.
What's happening is all these forces are breaking into two parties there's this Sunni.
Shot the Sunni about Muslims on one side and the Shiite Muslims on the other now the Sunnis are the -- government.
The on the other hand you have.
The rebels that we think of rebels good guys right there fighting those murderers asylum you know buying out there and what we -- unfold in recent pact that we don't really know -- the rebels are.
There are over a thousand rebel groups.

And we're supporting the rebels maybe some of the gulf wealthy gulf countries are supporting rebels and in the middle of all this is Jordan and Israel.
And the worry is that the Syrian fighting spreads out into the entire region into Jordan destabilize -- Jordan.
Palestine the Palestinians a Palestinian Authority right there.
It could be epic could be really a national or regional world -- is already dealing with a massive number of refugees and that's the key part of all this.
Is Jordan is the linchpin in all this.

And they will support -- to the very -- Russia we're meeting with the Russians they have so far been extremely reluctant -- got a lot riding them it's -- I think it's going to be very difficult to change anybody's minds.
And -- we have a lot of carrots were willing to offer the Russians.
I don't and why would that be I -- Russia already saying who is already said you know that that evidence of chemical weapons is questionable Kathy.
I I think we've made a big mistake from the very beginning that we should have gone to the Russians and say we have mutual interests here.
You can keep your relationship with -- serious just not a -- why don't you choose a new new leader.
Of Syria that's your strong ally in the region.
Keep battle lines but what we want here's your cooperation to.
To lowered the tensions here because again.
It has that the potential of having action reaction cycle and very soon and quickly.
