Assad Not Finished Yet

A number of reports have been published in recent days suggesting the tide of the war in Syria may finally have turned decisively against the Assad regime.

The reports cite a series of successes the Syrian rebels have achieved in recent weeks, and suggest the dictator and his allies will have difficulty reversing these setbacks. So is the game really finally up for the bloodstained regime of the Assads? A close examination of the evidence suggests that President Bashar Assad’s eulogizers have once again spoken too soon.

    AQ and the other Sunni rebels despise Shiites, which means that the offensive is bad news for Iran, with their puppets coming under threat. If Assad falls, it might also be bad news for Russia, whose Syrian naval base will also be under threat. Israel has played it cool for the last four years, with the Northern Command on alert.
