Just more Bla Bla Bla until the Syrians take down Assad and kill him. And as for the Russians, there's nothing in it for them, except selling cheap weapons to both sides, for the sake of excitement. The fact is, no one is concerned about Syria except Hezbollah, which is caught in the middle, between Al Assad and the opposition. So Hezbollah wants to take the escape avenue into Lebanon and intigrate into the Lebonese Army. This means more disaster ahead for Lebanon, already a factionalized No-Mans land.

burnt out syrian tanks are now shown daily on the news. the opposition is strenghtening and soldiers of Assad deserting. russia would do well to kick assad out and find a replacement that doesn't kill children.

When it comes to the Arab World, Only the Israelis truly understand it. The Europeans are finally learning (after several centuries of failed attempts). But for the USA, it's still "Day Two" of Arab studies. Arab culture does not understand national borders or unified central government. Arabs respect tribal authority or a heavy autocratic boot on the back of their necks. And they find it impossible to understand such concepts as voting and equal rights for those not of their clan.
