The case for a no-fly zone in Syria

Britain’s former foreign secretary admits that though a major intervention in Syria is not a possibility for the West, a case could be made for a NATO-enforced no-fly zone.

“Although Syrian air defenses are strong, they're not strong enough to overcome those of the United States and NATO,” Jack Straw told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour Wednesday.

Straw served for 13 years in top cabinet positions under Prime Ministers Tony Blair and Gordon Brown and played in key role in setting the West’s agenda in Afghanistan, Iran and other parts of the Middle East. His new memoir is called “Last Man Standing: Memoirs of a Political Survivor."  FULL POST

Human rights groups say right now at least 15,000 Syrian refugees are stranded at the border. Turkey won't let them across, leaving them as sitting ducks for Bashar al-Assad's artillery and his air force.

Turkey isn’t alone – tens of thousands of other refugees are flowing into Iraq, Lebanon and Jordan – countries with even fewer resources to deal with them.  FULL POST
