#1 Didn't Ambassador Stevens in Libya ship Chemical gas to the "rebels" ( he never did that? Guess again.) who are part Iranian Shias and alQaeda who will kill anybody for a whole spectrum of amusement and gain?
What would stop these Shias from gassing some Sunni suburb in Damascus ( killing their own people in effect ) to get NATO to wade into Assad when the rebels blame the Regime for the gas ( and who is to know it was Ambassador Stevens gift to the "resistance ?)
Assad goes down and the Iranians who are the best organized for the aftermath inside Syria are the best prepared to scoop up the country and show NATO the ass.
The Russians get blamed for supporting a guy who used gas on his own people and Ambassador Stevens shipped a boatload of stuff from Libya. That's why he was stripped to his shorts and duct taped and taken down the alley to have a bullet put in his head. The gas was on the way and NATO is conned so the Iranians can eat Lunch at the Damascus statehouse and Assad never makes it to the airport. ( the resistance does have the airport now, don't they?) Go look out the window.

Nope. You need to sort your Sunni from your Shiia.
What will happen when Assad goes is the battlefront will shift to the Sunni to Shiia and Kurd fronts. Which means major conflict in Iraq.

#4 I don't think Ambassor Stevens has seen chemical weapons or was giving them to Syria "rebels". All those plots just to get NATO on board to attack Assad? Assad doesn't need help to look bad in the eyes of NATO. He won't even speak to the west, so all this conspiracy about Assad is a nice guy who's being frame, mostly preach by the Russians, is just too obvious.

#5 Beats Turks being behind one.

#6 The Turks are a bunch of sooks. A few mortars lob over their border and they run to NATO including the US. Not a word about Turkey running weapons and rebels into Syria.
When the shoe is on the other foot, and they are being targeted from the Kurdish region of Iraq, they go in with all guns blazing. Over 300 Kurds killed in the last few years from incursions but mainly from the air.
