the prime ally of the unpopular uprising, turkey, having its own popular uprising, jordan too afraid to raise a finger so as not to end up like turkey or lebanon... i highly doubt assad is on his way down, in fact from what i see, the rebels are weeks or months away from a defeat. the question is, when these rebels go into exile, who is going to host them? turkey? qatar? saudi arabia? jordan? israel? i highly doubt any country would accept a bunch with so many cold blooded murders in their midst. with the rebels using and exporting chemical weapons, that makes things more complicated. since a group in iraq were caught trying to manufacture mustard and sarin gas. im sure this is not something you learn in al qaida camp. ask yourself, who taught the terrorists how to manufacture these chem weapons? its not gaddafi, its not saddam, its not assad.....
