TappingTheVein: Oznog: Assad is pretty deluded at this point. Either he believes he can continue, or that he'll just continue as long as possible because surrender would mean death anyways.It means death for the entire Alawis sect. They are in every position of power in Syria, being part of Assad's tribe. If he falls heads will roll, and since this is the Middle East i mean that in the most literal sense.Oznog: Earlier, he declared they would never be used on Syrians, but only against foreign invasion.He will declare whatever city he likes as "controlled by foreign invasion" and use it. He has been doing the traditional arab shtick of blaming the slaughter on "foreign invasion" since day one.flynn80: Of course not, that is not in the best interest of Israel.Right, Israel always prefers the islamic fundamentalist nutjobs with the hobby of murdering or funding the murder of israelis.
