With respect to Amb. Ford (who is highly respected in both Syria and Jordan, no small feat for an American at the moment) - the time for choices was lost a long time ago. It's not that there are no good choices any more - there are no choices at all that are palatable.

Assad is brutal and a dictator. Yet he maintained the peace in a very mixed country for a long time.

You can't arm and train just the moderate rebels. They don't wear name tags, you know. No matter how careful you are, you are going to wind up giving aid and comfort to terrorists as well.
