Sectarian war: if Saudi Arabia is arming, then a sectarian war is inevitable

Fadwa Suleiman, an actress who became an icon of Syria's revolution, is furious that her country's peaceful protest movement has been drawn into armed conflict with the regime.  She said she is saddened to see that "the revolution is not going in the right direction, that it is becoming armed, that the opposition which wanted to resist peacefully is playing the game of the regime and that the country is heading for sectarian war"." 

PS Anne Barnard of the New York Times still hopes (per her remarks on Hariri TV) that the John Stuart Mill Brigade of the Free Syrian Army will prevail and spread secularism in Syria.
