The international community is busy discussing how to handle the on-going crisis in Syria.

Some countries are for an intervention through some sort of military attack, while others are against.

One of problems regarding Syria is that a strike on the country's regime will automatically impact the rest of the complex network of alliances and old enemies found in the Middle East.

In other words, Syria is a pivotal player in the Middle Eastern house of cards, and it's very difficult to carry out an action on the country without affecting other parts of the region.

The chart here, developed by the Egyptian blogger The Big Pharaoh, tries to explain the complex situation in the Middle East.

Do you think that the chart is accurate?

What is your opinion? Should there be an intervention? And if yes, should the European countries take part?

And if not, then how do you feel that the crisis in Syria should be handled?
