Read moreDempsey options are military point of view, the cost can be spare to the regional Golf States, because of their own interest of the conflict, all their kingdoms are in immediate danger if this conflict drags on and also drones can be highly effective roles i.e surgical strikes and also criminal Assad military is not much effective on the ground without air power, recently he gained bit because of intensive airstrikes and massive deployment of Hezbollah militant and Iranians.
