'No-fly zone' over Syrian border with Turkey & Jordan

"Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) became the first senator to publicly call for an internationally imposed no-fly zone over parts of Syria, in an exclusive interview on Tuesday with The Cable."I'd like to see us begin to consider some safe zones inside Syria, particularly along the Turkish and Jordanian borders," Lieberman said in the basement of the Capitol, while waiting for a subway car to take him to his Senate offices. When asked if he meant there should be a no-fly zone over parts of Syria, he said. "I'd be in favor of that, yes."... Radwan Ziadeh, a Washington-based Syrian activist who is a member of the new Syrian National Council, told The Cable  that the Syrian opposition is split over the idea of foreign military intervention... There's also a recognition that a no-fly zone would have to include attacks on Syrian military assets...
