I am not as sanguine as the author about an Islamic government. And where's the principle in proposing that such a state is positive? A Moslem (or Muslim; I never know how to spell the word) president doesn't bother me as much as a Moslem (or Jewish or Christian) organization having that power. True, Morsi is a man. Will his religion rule or will he rule?

As for thinking that the Free Syrian Army is the solution to Bashar al-Assad; I think proposing that the American-led corporatocracy (the absolute opposite of a world consisting of independent states) - including 'strong man'-loving uncle Sam - should gain control of Syria in order to keep Bashar from keeping it, That's loony. As in Libya, The American-led corporatocracy will not sit idly by and let events unfold without trying to direct them. And that direction, in true counter-revolutionary fashion, includes (as always), finding the right 'democrats' in opposition to the evil ruler who must be ousted, helping them out with weapons and who knows what promises and then letting that proxy army do it's dirty work, either to the end or until it looks like directly assisting them can be done with no serious consequences. It's called quid pro quo. Uncle Sam will then expect payback (political support, open arms in government for advisors, etc.) from the new 'saviours' of Syria.

I note, with sadness, the author's lack of interest in the regular Syrian people who first stood up and cried out for freedom here, only to be quickly pushed aside by armed special interests (Bashar et al and the FSA et al) and corporate owned media, as others have noted. Very nice!
