Part 1 of "Syria at Seven" sought to substantiate a straightforward proposition: no one knows how or when this Syrian nightmare will end, but it cannot end well if Syrian civilians remain unprotected on the Assad regime's bull's-eye.What Russia, the regime and Iran fear is that the United States will successfully stabilize eastern Syria by working with elements of the Syrian opposition to establish, in concert with local councils, local Syrian government employees, and local civil society groups, an umbrella administration for the area that could demonstrate to all Syrians how the transitional governing body mandated by the 2012 Geneva Final Communique would work.The good news is that members of Syria's mainstream opposition are reaching out to Syrian Kurds to try to produce two outcomes: a joint vision for Syria's future that might reassure Turkey; and a plan for governance in eastern Syria that can produce a transitional governing body capable of demonstrating to Syrians that there is indeed an attractive alternative to Assad.
