It is easy for an idealist like me to call them off, but they are still valid questions for many the Syrians on the streets.
And if you don't think so, just check the comment section, and you'll see how very pressing they still are.
It has been argued, times and times again, that the only possibility for a successful coup d'etat, that can hold social cohesion through a transitional period died with General Ghazi Kanaan, who was groomed for such a move [I say that, not without much irony].
