    Assad will keep fighting till the end and the rebels will keep fighting to the last. It may take much longer than expected but Assad will eventually fall. After Assad's downfall the different groups who have formed an alliance to bring down Assad will go their seperate ways and the battle for control of the country will begin. Certainly there will be violent persecution of the Alwaites, the Shia & Sunnis will probably start fighting each other. Iran may send Hezbollah to fight so they can try get a foothold and form new political and military alliances in Syria to replace Assad. The military might try and try for a coup and instal a military government. Then there are the unexpected circumstances that might arise so the fighting in Syria will probably continue long after Assad goes and the fighting then will be civilian v civilian so it will be so it will further split the country. Just think in the 50s & 60s Syria was a regional superpower and then after the Yom Kippur War they started getting gradually weaker whilst Israel just got stronger and now look at this pathetic country. Just a damn good thing we never gave up the Golan because without that strategic buffer we would have been dragged into this long ago.
