The violence in Syria will never be ended through diplomacy. ++ The Obama administration must accept reality and work with options that could end the bloodshed. ++ More unarmed observers and sanctions will not work. ++ An arms embargo only reinforces the regime's military advantage. ++ Any new proposals should emphasize safe zones or humanitarian corridors, which could be enforced with a small military force. ++ The administration should also consider greater direct support to the opposition.
