Assad still confident that he can control Syria

Full story: The Washington Post

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad remains confident that he can ride out the maelstrom engulfing his country, casting into doubt prospects that intensified efforts to negotiate an end to the bloodshed can succeed, according to Syrians familiar with the thinking of the regime.

Assad is trying to control people by fear. How well did that work out for Saddam, Hitler, Gadafi, etc? That type just never learns.

Washington post moment : Makes a piece of the puzzle a bit more clear;

Syria war? What keeps it going.

The war in Syria sickens me. But more relevantly, the behavior of the participants disgusts me and revolts me. Were this merely a popular revolution, Bashar al-Assad and his government of thugs in Syria should have been defeated and expelled from Syria by the Syrian people months ago. This is not merely a popular revolution. The war did indeed start out as a popular revolution, but now that is not what is causing the war to continue. This present Syrian war has nothing to do with what is represented as the Arab Spring. Money on both sides is all that keeps this war going.

The participants are not just the combatants fighting Syria itself, but also the countries behind the scene – Russia, Qatar, and Europe - who in this competition both continue to orchestrate with other countries the continuation of this human slaughter. The war in Syria is not merely a civil revolution, but a proxy war between competing financial interests; between countries and groups of countries.

How long will the war go on? The war will likely continue so long as the competing financial interests have money to finance it. That could be then until ever living Syrian is dead. The Syrian people who are being slaughter are irrelevant to the war’s continuation. The more Syrians die actually works to the interest of these competing financial interests.

Competing natural gas sources are keeping this war going: One source from Russia and Iran, and the other source from Qatar. The customer for this natural gas is Europe. Both these competitors want to build their own gas pipeline to feed Europe’s unquenchable demand for energy. Both competing gas pipelines have to go through Syria. This is a war then for nothing more than for a gas pipeline right-of-way. The death of the Syrian people -both Sunni and Shea- in this war are merely the consequences of this proxy war; not ethics, not issues of bad government, not religion, but greed.

The jews and Alawites share one thing in common they bomb innocent people without mercy. The only difference is that Assad is killing 1000 daily.

The entire world knows that what is happening in Syria is a terrorist proxie war created and funded by the american government and israel through the puppet dictatorships of qatar,bahrain,saudi arabia,uae,jordan,turkey etc.The entire world has watched as mass murdering terrorist have killed men women and children and tried to overthrow the rightful government in Syria.Thankfully the vast majority of Syrians stand behind their government and miliary in its fight against these terrorist from other countries who are funded and amred by the american government and israel.When countries and peoples stay united it makes it harder for the terrorist american israel controlled government to use its primary weapon which is divide and conquer.

Now we have another war about to pour the burning scraps of shredded metal into the tortured bodies of humankind, and if I am not mistaken the 100 that France bombed to death were from your tribe.

You are upholding the right of France to
maintain her Neo Colonial Empire in the Middle East and Africa so they can kill Muslims with impunity where ever they want.

France and Britain is the common enemy of both Sunni and Shiite;

Would Russia, China or Germany, ever be guilty of such a crime?.

After so many of their puppet dictators being deserted by US patronage, "would be" dictators are reluctant to sign up with the States. Take Hosni Mubarak for example
he's going to get a new trial. Actually the bullets fired into the demonstrators were not Government issue,so how could he be guilty of killing them.?
And if it wasn't Secret Service, or Army who was it, not the brotherhood they were not interested at that stage. Trouble Makers wanting to open opportunity for something to happen enabling change. Why was change so necessary, because demographically and economically the situation WAS (is) UNTENABLE.
THE SHOOTERS WERE PAID ASSASSINS.
PAID BY BRITAIN Britain and FRANCE France.

Same lies as usual from you hasbarat??? The wars in Libya,Egypt,Tunsia and Syria are created proxie wars created by the american government and israel and most intelligent people in the entire world can clearly see this.The covert terrorist actions in south america by the american jew controlled government in the 60's 70's and present are basically the same thing which is the american jew controlled government trying to overthrow popular governments in other countries and install weak puppet governments which can be controlled by the american government and israel.The despots are in qatar,bahrain,saudi arabia,jordan etc but those despots also happen to be american israel puppets as well.
