    massive armories or the WMD storage areas. These will be looted just as they were in Libya. If there is a complete collapse of the regime, NATO will have to send in tens of thousands - I believe the estimate given was about 60,000 just to secure the WMD's. Syria is a tougher nut to crack than Iraq.

    Watch the US and Turkey apply less pressure on the Assad regime and scale back arms supply to the rebels in the near future. They will also start to look seriously at a political solution - something they should have been doing over a year ago.

    Qatar and the Saudis will continue to supply arms and money to the militant Islamist's because they have less to lose and everything to gain with Syria having a religious Sunni government to match their own.
