Assad plays the same card always: “Do you really want to reap the results of a failed state in Syria?”
If we think Libya was a mess, Syria will start a holocaust.
The Arab Spring is becoming a winter nightmare.
The Big Mo started the slaughter, and until the last of his followers is bayonetted, or repudiates Islam, the slaughter will continue. The Arab Spring is the result of the continual struggle for power among muzzie states and financed by crude prices near or over $100 a barrel. And yet, when crude prices drop, that can (and has) lead to invasions by and of OPEC brethren to grab more market share (Saddam did that three times, once in Iran, twice in Kuwait). Regime change in the muzzie world never results in change, other than a change in names on the door.
