    A battalion commander is a colonel,so in essence the Syrian Army is deeply divided. The loyal divisions which are under the control of Mahr al Assad and the power behind the throne, which are the Army Generals who are in the majority Alawite. Sure there are Sunni Loyalists, however one can be sure they are under pressure, for what is happening in Syria is genocide. The true figures will never be released. Syria is a vital strategic ally both to Tehran and Moscow. Members of the RG are not only active in the Intelligence services, but are known to be active in suppressing the populace through violence. It is a known fact, that some of these RG characters have been captured. It is a known fact that members of the Syria military that have deserted are effectively fighting alongside those citizens and veterans who oppose further Assad family rule over their great country. This could well escalate with countries such as Turkey taking a more direct role. Saudi Arabia must take one big step backwards, for they lack basic understanding when human beings seek full freedom. Israel will not act,unless asked by Turkey. Turkey can and will impose order on its common border,should Syria conduct hot pursuit of refugees, then Syria must be aware of the consequences, for Turkey carries a big stick. Freedom for the great people of Syria. May Allah the merciful be with you. Good day from stormy Swiss Alps.
