The "Free Syrian Army": an important update

The Free Syrian Army (FSA), pretty much a Turkish-Saudi proxy, is going to make a strong launch in the next few days, according to Western Sources. While the Arab League suffocates the regime with sanctions and flying restrictions, the FSA will enter the fray as a major player, soon. The telegraph story yesterday on the Libyan and NATO attempts to supply the Syrian national council with weapons and mercenaries, is very interesting, and it shows how the same Libya NATO team is working on militarising the situation in Syria. There was another report on how the French are training the FSA in Northern Lebanon with the help of the pro-Saudi forces inside Lebanon. The Guardian had first investigated the FSA activity in Northern Lebanon.

My take on this is that the Libyan scenario is the worst for Syria; it only means one things: a Sectarian war that will deepen the rift between Sunnis and Shiites/Allawis. Such tensions will spill into Lebanon and Iraq (again, yes); Saudi Arabia will emerge stronger due to the demographics (Sunni majority). The Iranian role would be restricted to Lebanon, the Syrian coast, Iraq, Eastern Saudi Arabia and Northern Yemen. On the humanitarian, economic and security levels, the situation would be catastrophic: Iraqi-style ethnic cleansing is on the table. Let us hope the FSA fails.
