Focal Point of four regional conflicts

Syria has become the focal point of at least four regional conflicts: between the old autocratic order and the liberal movements for modernization and democracy; between Iran and its allies and the U.S., Israel, and the „moderate“ Arab states; between the Western powers and Russia and China; and between the Sunni and Shiite sects. In the end, the sectarian battle – with its potential for unending, pitiless carnage – may drive all the rest.
    According to U.S. and Arab sources, Iran has sent advisers from the Quds Force of its Revolutionary Guard to Syria to advise Assad, supplied him and his family with bodyguards, and flown in planeloads of weapons through Iraqi airspace.
