Syria Falling Apart amid Nationwide Aerial Bombing
Arutz Sheva ^ | 30/10/12 | Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Syria has gone from bad to worse, with nationwide aerial bombings by Syrian President Bashar Assad’s warplanes and more bomb attacks by the opposition. The IDF remains on high alert at the Golan Heights border.

Explosions shook Syria's capital on Monday as warplanes launched their heaviest air raids yet and two car bombs struck, an AFP correspondent said.

One bomb struck the predominantly Christian and Druze area of Jaramana, just outside Damascus, killing 11 people, according to state-run news agency SANA.

The second hit several hours later in the southern Al-Hajar Al-Aswad district, which has seen heavy fighting, causing an unknown number of casualties, state television reported.

World powers looked to pick up the pieces of a failed effort for a Muslim holiday ceasefire, with envoy Lakhdar Brahimi in Moscow and due in China on Tuesday as he prepares to present new ideas to the UN Security Council.

Muzzies don't ever cease fire (except when terminated). Get used to it.

If I was in Israel, I’d be passing the gas masks.

There’s no telling what Assad will do, last ditch.

Or when the Muslim Brotherhood gets ahold of those SCUDs and chemical weapons.

Mr. Assad is going to lose his war - and his life - as he deserves. But what comes after him will no doubt be worse, unless Russia intervenes to ensure the continuance of a military dictatorship under their influence and patronage. McCain, et al, will want to use US forces to counter that. We must not let them, for that will be the gateway to WWIII.

This.

Israeli citizens are fortunately pretty well prepared for these kind of contingencies.

All those Hezbollah rockets intended for use against Israel are now being used by Hezbollah against Syria.

(nobody outsmarts God...)

After? There can be no conclusive after, just lots of failed attempts at closure. Power struggles, proxy wars, attempted partitions, ad infinitum. Syria is too severely f@#$ed up for any afters.

Syria taking advantage of a distracted America to murder freedom fighters.

A rather valid question on your part. Back to reading the rather large LC AL-QAEDA IN LIBYA: A PROFILE document.

Could it be because a number of brave Americans lost their lives when they interrupted the handover of the said stingers...?

Damascus would be more appropriate as a peaceful place for goat and sheep ranches. Something to look forward to.

Not since Richard Cœur de Lion, and Saladin, anyway.
