#1 there appears to be a rapidly growing presence of all kinds of ragtag militia's in Aleppo and elsewhere in Syria. the country could well become another free-for-all if Assad is toppled. If Sytia becomes another Libya - it is nigh on impossible to control what happens to all the weapons in that country, or whose hands they wind up in. All kinds of hardware could make its way to AQ, the Palestinians and Hezbollah. Syria is a one-stop supermarket for these people.
