A “no fly zone” for Syria?

Interesting piece in The Atlantic .  It highlights the ambiguity of the term ‘no fly zone’.  It can only add to the concern of the sovereigntists who fear  that ‘humanitarian intervention’ is ‘regime change’ by stealth.  As I noted recently, the sovereigntists have appeared to draw a line on Syria.  If this article is right, and Syrian opposition movements are now calling for outside military intervention, it poses the question of whether liberal states will / should go round the Security Council to provide that kind of support.
