WINEP: 'To decisively break the Syria-Iran nexus!'

"... Syria's geography -- much trumpeted by the regime as a strategic asset -- was its greatest liability, as various states took advantage of the country's insecurity and sponsored numerous coups. If history repeats itself and regional political jockeying turns toward potential military action, Syrian protestors will likely expand their calls for U.S. intervention as well, especially given NATO's defeat of Libya's Muammar Qadhafi. Although the Obama administration has repeatedly stated that such action in Syria remains "off the table," Washington could soon find itself drawn into an emerging regional battleground where military intervention with allies at the right moment might be key..."

"especially given NATO's defeat of Libya's Muammar Qadhafi"

I thought it was supposed to be the local rebels who defeated Qadhafi?

By the way, Ramadan has just finished, so just who was doing all the fighting in Libya in the past fortnight. The Islamist salafists would have been fasting all day, so they would not be in too good a state to fight during daylight hours. So just who was doing the fighting? It couldn't have been NATO could it?
