"What is happening to Syria is far more serious for the region than anything that could occur in Libya. I have written before about the horrific consequences if Syria should come apart at the seams: the horror would be quite bloody as far as the country’s religious minorities -- Christians, members of the idiosyncratic Alawite sect -- are concerned. Worse, a full-scale civil war in the geographic center of the Middle East’s most volatile sore spot -- the 'frontline' state of Syria, where the Israeli-Arab conflict is most explosive -- has the potential for igniting a regional war, and even a world war if the conflict spirals out of control."
