Syria dynamics

david52 Zone 6June 21, 2012

So the NYT is reporting that CIA agents are now in Turkey, sorting out the opposition and helping funnel weapons and so on -

and then we have reports that the boat carrying the attack helicopters the Russians were sending turned around and went back home:

And that the Russians are sending ships to protect/evacuate their naval port in Syria

http://worldnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/06/19/12303974-three-russian-ships-headed-for-syria-us-says?lite

And a Syrian Pilot defected to Jordan, taking his MIG with him.

Full out civil war.
