"Now that NATO is closing up shop in Libya, will it turn to Syria? Right now, the answer is no. But if the fragmented Syrian opposition -- bolstered by Turkey, a member of NATO, which is turning increasingly against Syrian President Assad -- manages to set up a Benghazi-like enclave either inside Syria or across the border in Turkey, anything goes. To be sure, there are lots of differences between Libya and Syria. ... That hasn’t stopped hawks from suggesting that it’s time to intervene in Syria, too." (10/31/11)
