15. Yes, I have no doubt it would be extremely brutal

You might have your doubts, but the fighting I did in Iraq I did with one hand behind my back. Commanders were reluctant to fire 155 HE artillery into urban areas and they also disliked the use of the main gun on tanks in urban areas as well. I was fortunate not to be involved in Fallujah during November 2004 (although my company spear-headed the Marine assault there) where much of the restrictions I mentioned above weren't there. Syria would look like a larger version of Fallujah in all of its glory.
