Re: Two conflicting views on Syria's future.

Unless you subscribe to the Economist online (I don't and you probably don't also Sertorio) you would not have read the article in full. However, I have a borrowed copy of the relevant edition that features that editorial and having read it in full I can only say that it makes sense. Tomorrow I wil...

Re: Two conflicting views on Syria's future.
