Is Syria on the verge of civil war?

In today's pick of the international press, we look at fears Syria could collapse into civil war, ask if the US is responsible for the Israel-Turkey row, and look at whether the US could have responded differently to 9/11.

The Atlantic asks if Syria is on the verge of civil war - saying the rebels are poised to go from peaceful protest to armed insurrection.

Time magazine says the US is responsible for the Israel-Turkey row, while Foreign Policy looks at the Palestinians' plan B - to get around the US veto over statehood.

Noam Chomsky writes in the Huffington Post - about what the US should have done after 9/11, while a piece on the blog Social Forum argues it made Americans better people.
