It is wisdom to give peace a chance but what happened was a mere disaster.If the no fly zone was declared last year assad should have long gone by now.The was this perception that the world would stand against assad after he started killing his people, instead Assad was supplied all sort of weapons by Russia. Iran and Hezbolla and he determined to rid of any political foes. Thanks God at long last, sanity prevailed in the white house. Now it up to the type of weapon that will blow the dust and cause Assad to soil , the Hezbolla, Iran and the infamous militia wet themselves and let Putin wait in vain for the dust to settle. Blessed are those who have joined the son s and daughters of Syria in their quest for freedom and dignity. Al Qaeda or no Al Qaeda this revolution is blessed. However such gratitude should also be extended to the sons and daughters of Palestine and let them till the land of their forefathers again.

Syria war reaches a new stage - a regional war. Eventually Israel, Qatar, Saudi, Bahrain, Yemen, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq, Libya, Palestine, Lebanon, Hezbollah, and Iran will be in the loop, if the no-fly-zone is put in. Since most of those countries are huge, this war, if happen, may not end in 30 years with tens of millions killed.

“Washington is considering a no-fly zone to help Assad's opponents,” one senior diplomat told Reuters. He said it would be limited “time-wise and area-wise,” adding that it could be implemented “possibly near the Jordanian border.”
...
Even a limited zone could cost the US at much as $50 million per day, according to the WSJ. A full-scale operation would be considerably more expensive. The Pentagon has hopes that US foreign partners will help in footing the bill, if necessary.

Jordan currently has a massive presence of US troops, which took part in a major exercise, dubbed Eager Lion. On Thursday, the Obama administration authorized the arming of rebels, and the Pentagon decided that it would keep its F-16 fighter jets and Patriot anti-aircraft missiles in Jordan after taking part in the drill, according to a US defense official, who spoke to AFP on condition of anonymity.

“It seems to me this is a very dangerous and ominous moment, particularly as Sunni clerics have just met in Cairo, Egypt and called for a holy war against the Assad regime...."

"Jordan currently has a massive presence of US troops"

Not sure 4500 US troops is considered massive.

Syria could declare war with Jordan if jets enforcing such no-fly-zone originated from there. That would complicate the situation.

Imposing a no-fly zone unilaterally is a declaration of war by the US. Syria won't sit idly with this. If the US does this then, and if they are successful taking out Assad, all the militias will fight each other. And if the killing don't stop, those who broke the house has to put boots on the ground to stop the fighting. The Syrians will be more angry at the US than the Iraqis. So more US soldiers will die in Syria than Iraq. Obama stop intervening.
