Assad's sense of security shaken as Russia admits he could yet be ousted
Evacuation plans put in place as Nato chief agrees it is 'only a matter of time' until regime falls

Russia today conceded that a victory of the Syrian opposition is possible, putting in doubt the extent to which the Syrian government can depend on its most important ally.

“One must look the facts in the face,” said Moscow’s special envoy for Middle East Affairs, Mikhail Bogdanov, quoted by the state-run RIA news agency.“Unfortunately, the victory of the Syrian opposition cannot be ruled out.”

Mr Bogdanov said the Syrian government was “losing control of more and more territory” and that Moscow was preparing plans to evacuate Russian citizens if necessary. These would include many Russians who married Syrians during the two countries’ long alliance. It is not clear if this means any fundamental change in the Russian position or whether Mr Bogdanov is speaking of a possible rebel victory in the short or the long term. It was suggested yesterday that he was unaware of the presence of journalists when he made the remarks.

Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the Nato Secretary-General, separately said that it is “only a matter of time” before the regime falls. As part of his speech, he confirmed that the Syrian government had fired short-range missiles at opposition forces in the north of the country.

...and CCP China loses yet another ally.

But for the Chinese Communist Party too, it is "only a matter of time".

Bye bye CCP, Nobody will miss you!

I notice that the ridiculous uber-nationalist anti-Japanese, anti-Phillipines, anti-every neighbour China has hate propaganda spewing from Beijing has been ramped up lately!

Is it the final death spasms of the dying Chinese Communist Party dictatorship that we are witnessing?
