    Well this was all foreseeable right from the beginning as the unemployment levels and poverty levels are very high in Syria .There is also wide spread corruption on various levels of the government ..( civil liberties are also nonexistent ) .The Magic question remains “Those this mean that it is the end of Basher El-ASSAD” ....only time will tell us what will happen with Syria , Basher and the not so intelligent or intelligent Syrian's that are opposing his regime .. If I was a Syrian and living in Syria, right now, I would ask for refugee status in countries such as Canada or Europe. For Assad to be toppled there has to be a conflict with the IDF and ASSAD does not want that. Until he decides to either attack Israel or gives Israel a good reason to invade him. He will fortunately or unfortunately remain in power. Old proverbs say the Devil we know is better than the devil we don't know... Round and round we go , were will Assad stop nobody knows . Mr Assad if you are reading this opinion of mine , If I was you I would make sure that my money cannot be seized by foreign countries , because we know that if you repeat what your father did in Hama . This time around you will be held accountable , go invest in rubber bullets and water canons ? You don’t want to join the Ghaddafi club ... he is a nut , you are not!
