Yes we all know Assad will go just like in March 2011 "Assad will be gone by June" and in June 2011 "Assad will be gone by October" and in October "Assad will be gone by January 2012" and in January 2012 "Assad will be gone by March" and in March "Assad will be gone by June" and in June "Assad" will be gone by October and now its October and again we are hearing the threats Assad will be gone.
Difference between Assad and Gaddafi is that the rebels in Libya had help from NATO, in Syria NATO only threatens it will help but does not have the balls to do anything.
