Russian sources are so much more credible than our own enemedia.

How long do you predict it will take before our own enemedia is all orgasmic about how much better the Syrian people will be under the heel of Al Qaida or Hezbollah?

Assad was an evil man and a threat to the West. Unfortunately, I have difficulty imagining that his replacement will be better for America, better for Israel, or even better for the remaining Christians in Syria. I hope the Russians will be able to install one of their own to replace Assad. Sadly, I trust their pick a whole lot more than I trust the choices that our White House would favor.

Obama is working hard to totally de-stabilize the Middle East.

(At least he only killed him, didn't waterboard him.)

Maybe he has been whisked away in a deal, and the report is so no one starts looking for him.

The Russians probably killed him. Wouldn’t want the real story of Iraq’s transfer of WMDs to Syria by Russia to get out. Remember how back then the dem politicians were going to Syria all the time and being photographed with Bashad etc. ?? There were pictures of Kerry and Pelosi kissing his backside. The Plot thickens.

Will Israel react? Mideast becomes more unstable or more stable?

Someone posted that the account was fake...

Appears to be no confirmation from other media.

Langley would know if this is true or not, I hope.

Alternatively, the Russians spirited him (them) away to exile and never to be heard from again. The gift of life is the price for anonymity.

The Muslim Brotherhood, home of Osoma Bin Laden, is already there. They've taken over the most of the middle east already - and they're being funded with our tax dollars and supported by our military.

The 10, standing with pomp and glitter, head for their vaults.
The people, angry and in disarray, loot the shops.
Which of these knew in advance? The eagle? The bear? The crown? The sun?
No, fate was not a consideration for this race.

I've asked the mods to pull this thread from Breaking News as the report is not yet confrmed elsewhere. The Twitter account may be a hoax. If so, they put a lot of work in to it. The list of Twitter accounts it follows is what one would expect for a foreign government press account.
