Interesting that Assad is now sporting a military uniform. He must be desperately trying to align and assert his diminished power over the nation and military establishment. It's only a matter of time before he goes, and then Israel needs to launch an offensive of peace towards the powers that seek to emerge. There won't be democratic rule in Syria, but there may be more flexibility in distancing Syria from Iran.
