If Syria responds at all, they will try and attack Israel...but Israel is already prepared for that.
What the Americans should be worrying about is not Assyria, nor Israel, but Mother Russia
If anyone attacks either the US fleets near Syria, or the US Home Soil...it will be the Russians....the US should be made well aware that the Russians also have ships in that location and will react on Syrian behalf
