Because all this goes all the way back to 9/11 and probably a few years before that when Paul Wolfowitz told General Wesley Clark that the US had "5 to 10 years to take out those old Soviet client regimes: Iraq; Iran; Syria." A few years later A Clean Break was written for Netanyahu, and Murdoch began sponsoring the Neoconservative movement. And a few years after that PNAC was founded and Rebuilding America's Defenses was published. The following year 9/11 happened. And since then a series of wars revealed to Clark shortly after 9/11 has occured.
The big 'un is Iran.
And where is Iran now? Yep. In Syria. Helping Assad to crush the Jihadis unleashed onto Syria by the NATO-Israeli-Gulf monarchy axis-of-evil.
It turns out Israel was in on the U.S.-led airstrikes on Syriahttps://t.co/83xRvNR571— Haaretz.com (@haaretzcom) 15 April 2018
