Ahmet of Tunisia sent me this: "Asad, wasn't he a week ago volunteering his intellectual (newly acquired military expertise) services to that very dynamic he is warning against today?? it hard trying to figure him out these days indeed: "But the meltdown is well on its way and has a dynamic all its own. There is no stopping it now. Syria is unleashed. Guns rule and the strong will eat the weak. Brahimi speaks of Syria turning into Somalia and a “big catastrophe.” If that happens, it will become a prime target for American and Israeli drones, which will troll the skies in hunting aL-Qaida and those with a long beards, as is the case in Pakistan and Yemen.""
