1. This is a war without any long range plan or post-end game.

That's the conclusion drawn by an expert at the US Navy War College cited at the end of an earlier version of this same Reuters article: http://uk.reuters.com/article/2012/12/07/uk-syria-crisis-idUKBRE8B40G820121207

But some analysts say there is no long-range plan.

"Western powers have been too focused just on their endgame, which was to see Assad go," says Hayat Alvi, associate professor of national security studies at the US Naval War College. "There is no substantive plan about any other contingencies, risks, and post-Assad scenarios."
