Response to Purveyor (Original post)

2. For the sake of the Syrian people it is time to admit that Assad has handled the opposition to his

rule more effectively than Ben Ali, Gaddafi and Mubarak did to their opposition.

By pushing his country into civil war, something the others could not or would not do, he has won. Merkel is apparently coming to this conclusion. Others should admit as much, support Assad as the best alternative to ISIS, bring the civil war to a close, allow him to remain as dictator indefinitely and hope the next generation of Syrians can do better.
