The only roll the SAA is on is the one around their bellies, they could not fight their way out of a wet paper bag. They depend on other countries armies to come to their rescue. Apparantly you cannot read, go back to find out what the Assad slaves have taken over and post it please.

And that surprises you that people do not want to live in a tent for the rest of their lives??? See if you can find a post showing what Assad is offering these people to help them. Hint, it is filed under nothing or rubble.

Any help the Syrians have had came in much later in the conflict after those Terrorists had been flooding over the border from Turkey Jordan and Lebanon,the Syrians should have had help much sooner,now its pay back time.

If you read the chronological happenings of the war, the Rebels were gaining territory day by day, then Iran sent in troops, then Hezbollah sent in troops and Iraq and so on, now they have a stalemate again, not winning but stale. that tells me that without the jet bombings, helicopter guns, tanks, and missiles the SAA are useless except maybe to be security at Walmart.

Assad can only rely on his Alawite forces and the radical Shia foreigners coming from Iraq,Lebanon and Iran.

I think his paranoia must be overwhelming with so many troops of the SAA being Sunni. He must shudder everytime a jet flies over the palace.

The Sunni pilots would almost certainly be grounded the dictator is not taking a chance like that.
That's why Assad has had so much trouble he can't rely on them while blasting their towns to smithereens and ethnic cleansing.

Assad could now decide where to put his military once he clear the entire place and rebuilt in a way that this wont happened in a long time by destroying the place he could decide how to built and who to put in place so those foreigner fighters won't have a chance next time they try this in his home well done Assad

Best about boys , will be boys is the conformity to insanity by three people the author of the article George and the Abenger.
The real Avenger abdicated his brain he went spare and an even bigger imbecile took over.
Whose fault is it that the Brotherhoof caught foot and mouth disease from Israel's Netanyahu.?????????
I'll tell you who it was Obama .
Instead of offering them inducements in kind he offered them only with annoyance.
This led to scepticism on the incapacity of the narrow minded bastards, and as we all know a doubting ""dead"" ha, ha,ha, sh*t
is lost with no leader to follow and no helper at hand, or likely to come forward.

I have read plenty of articles they are guarded so they don't defect or run away.
The recent SAA offensive is using Hezbollah and Shia forces in large numbers.
Now they have showed up suddenly the SAA is on offensive it's no coincidence.
