Why war in Syria

The Anti-Gnostic:
Why are bankrupt Western nations rushing headlong into a Muslim family feud? My unschooled opinion is first, as Dennis mentions, because they can. The US governing elite are bored, hubristic ideologues. Second, Israel wants the region outside its borders transformed into backwards, feuding hellholes. Their greatest existential threat is to be surrounded by technologically advancing Arab polities. Third, Mohammedan conquest, as Gulf Arabs work to smash the hated Shia and their Iranian allies. (Can anyone educate me on the roots of the Persian-Arab conflict?)

None of which, obviously, implicates any actual American interest. Of course, I'm presuming an actual American nation with its own interests.
