    honest--if the second point were the case, it really wouldn't be Syria at all....  a country like that is defined as much by geopolitics as the country itself.

    But even so....the battle lines are different...it's more nebulous than Syria was.  Even so, it's the ground forces/artillery that's wreaking all this havoc...I wonder how effective a no-fly-zone would even be?  It was effective in Libya--in part because NATO upped the ante a bit--like a no fly zone Plus.  (hitting offensive units, etc.)  Seems to me this situation would be far more precarious in Syria...with the potential for far more 'collateral damage'
