BBC said:
At least 37 people have been killed in crackdowns during protests calling for the downfall of the government held across Syria after Friday prayers.


The deaths took place mostly in Homs and Hama as protesters called for a no-fly-zone to be imposed, activists said.

BBC News - Syria protesters call for no-fly zone

It's OK Dave, I've got a plan...

Send that Billy Hague blokey and tell them we'll use "deferred gun-boat diplomacy."

If they can hang on a few years we'll send an aircraft carrier & if that doesn't work, we'll send some planes a few years later. That ought to do it.

Failing that, ask Thomas Cook if they wouldn't mind extending that block booking for the RAF in the 4 star hotels.

**** Syria with their meagre output of oil they are not worth bothering about. If they need help they can call on their Arab brothers who have plenty war planes to enforce a no-fly zone.

The Arab League has already come out and condemned the killings in Syria - are we about to see them put their money where their mouth is? Hopefully the UN/NATO/UK/France will sit on their hands for a bit longer and wait to see whether the Arabs really are prepared to do anything rather than just mouth off about it and then condemn Western intervention when it suits them.

This is definitely one show we should keep well clear of.Dave might be flushed with success after the Libya result but I think he should rest on his laurels and let someone else have a go.

Dave was damned lucky it turned out as it did and I haven't heard the fat lady singing yet. The country is now awash with weapons supplied to the ‘rebels’ plus those taken from Gaddafi's arsenals.
