16. It's not hard to understand why Turkey is annoyed.

I think Assad is toast, don't know how long it will go on though, and I thought he'd played his hand pretty well up to this point; but I think he is a figurehead, and has been all along, and the "ruling elites" jerked his chain when things got sticky.

Edit: we are probably going to get a fake replacement for Assad soon, some military guy who promises "democratic reform" while he is "restoring order".
