Our friends want guarantees, our enemies want guarantees, our people want guarantees, because everybody is afraid of something, everybody has something to lose. Well, the rebels have nothing left to lose, and as such they cannot offer guarantees. They have to be given something first. Shall we say: greater logistical support and a no-fly zone so they can actually control the territories that they liberate? Once that happens, rebels will have something that they are afraid of losing, meaning that they could now venture into the business of providing guarantees.
