Joshua Landis on the situation in Syria -- fear of civil war

Joshua Landis' site
features his explanation of why Syrians might be hesitant to rise and demonstrate against the regime even though it is not delivering much in the way of reform: without a strong state, Syria might turn into Iraq (or, I think, Lebanon). A good overall discussion of the challenges facing the Middle East and many other countries as well.
