Should we be honored that a new regional order is being “negotiated” on our land, exploiting our differences, our fears, our desires and our prejudices? Should we say “thank you world!” for giving us such a “historic” opportunity, such a historic mess? Sarcasm aside, now that the resurgent “realists” are arguing more loudly for a sustainable stalemate in Syria, extolling its benefits for all different players, it should be clear by now that the Syrian civil war is bound to last for years to come, that a path out of the quagmire will be difficult to carve, and that the burden of the work will have to carried out by Syrians.
