Good read on the situation there.  Stymie & the MFM are Assad's best weapons against the opposition...

ETA - As an interesting sidebar, there is this tidbit:

Still some angst over Syrian meddling in Lebanon and suffing of their one-time PM.

Not that the UN-led party will get far...

2nd ETA - Dang, I was wondering if there was a chance Israel might get sucked into this and now there are concerns that Hezbollah will start some chit with Israel and as a side benefit it will draw attention away from Assad, not sure if Hezbollah can be successful in widening the conflict but even if it is just these clowns it isn't good for the people of Israel!

Lots of scenario info in the link -

Stymie has the sh*tty touch, or whatever the opposite of the golden touch is, everything he touches turns to sh*t!

That is bad enough, but realpolitik must then be judged by its logic and its fruits.  There are none, except for undermining the moral position of the United States.  To repeat what has been written here before, the Assad regime is an enemy of the United States.  It has the blood of tens of thousands of Syrians on its hands but also of thousands of Americans, killed in Iraq by jihadis it led into Iraq for that purpose.  It is Iran’s only Arab ally, and provides Iran with a Mediterranean port, a border with Israel through Hizballah, and an arms trafficking route from Iran to Hizballah.  It supports and houses Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist groups.  The fall of the Assad regime would be the greatest blow we can strike against Iran and its terrorist allies today.
