6. I agree Assad will not stop

and the terrified citizens are hemorrhaging from their country.

More than 2 million refugees have fled Syria's violence in an exodus that shows no sign of letting up and could destabilize neighboring countries, the U.N. refugee agency said Tuesday.

Antonio Guterres, head of the Office for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, said an average of almost 5,000 citizens a day are flowing out of Syria, many of them with little more than the clothes they are wearing.

What's particularly alarming, Guterres said, is that number of refugees has surged by 1.8 million in just 12 months up from almost 231,000 a year ago.
