A Higher Military Council for the Free Syrian Army (announced yesterday) is probably a step in the right direction. So far I think this group has been a ragtag collection of defected and poorly equipped and led soldiers with more enthusiasm than actual soldiering skills. A proper command structure will help maintain discipline and also start crystallising an alternative to the Assadist army. The obvious disadvantage is that it further institutionalises a potential civil war in the country.

Thanks for that. I meant to say civil war.
