This incident is proof of the fact that if Syria spirals deeper down into a vortex of chaos, death and destruction the spillover effect will be great for all nations in the region. The country must be stabilized and should become a real platform of order, benevolence and expansiveness for its citizens. The Syrian people deserve a decent future. The nation is an integral piece of the Middle East jigsaw puzzle. If one of the pieces is missing the picture will not be complete. Lakhdar Brahimi's efforts at peacemaking must be supported. The task is a complex one, but I maintain that the darkest of situations can be redeemed, i.e. Counter-balanced. Also, outside military intervention and/or a no fly zone are not options. Prayers for Syria.
