  •  I don't believe that the SNC can be (8+ / 0-)

    successfully restructured and integrated into a coalition that the US and EU will find acceptable. What I have observed is that the SNC is splintering and becoming even more one dimensional. Pressure from the EU, USA and others may change this but I am doubtful that it can be done.

    I have the impression from events here in Turkey that the SNC and to some degree the FSA have been written off as a lost cause by the Turkish Government. People around the world don’t know that Turkish PM Erdogan has a very short attention span and it appears that he and his government have moved on to the next shiny object. I also get the impression that Saudi Arabia has done the same.

    I plan to write three posts about Syria soon. One about this week’s events in Ras al-Ayn, one about how the character of the fighting in Syria has and will probably continue to change now that winter is quickly approaching, and one with some background information about Syria because most people just don’t know much about the country.

    Lamb chop, we can quibble what to call it, but I think we can both agree it's creepy.
