"The violence in Syria may appear to be exceptional, the aberrant barbarity of a petty dictatorship frenetically clinging to its arbitrary power in the face of widespread discontent. And in many ways Syria does stand out from the collection of criminal classes we call states as uniquely authoritarian and oppressive. ... However anomalous Syria seems among its counterparts, it is ultimately different from other states -- if at all -- only as a matter of degree." (07/31/11)
