The news report I heard from NBC said without intervention the rebels will fail as Hezbollah is destroying them.<quoted text>
There is a lot of conflicting information on what is actually occurring. The Chinese and the Russians gave Assad carte blanche to finish the job. Who are the rebels? Some say they are Al Queada affiliated; others say they are not. The UN said that there was no concrete proof that sarin gas was being used. Hezbollah and Iran, Russia are backing the regime; I can't see that our involvement would amount to anything good. It's a quagmire.
Can Assad's regime survive this either way? I doubt it.
