Does U.S. Lose Either Way in Syria?

Edward Luttwak: "It would be disastrous if President Bashar al-Assad's regime were to emerge victorious after fully suppressing the rebellion and restoring its control over the entire country... But a rebel victory would also be extremely dangerous for the United States and for many of its allies in Europe and the Middle East. That's because extremist groups, some identified with Al Qaeda, have become the most effective fighting force in Syria."

Politico: "There's never been more pressure for President Barack Obama do something about Syria. And there's never been less consensus on what he could do, or should do."
