Assad is an Alawite.
This is a religious outgrowth of the Shiites.
The Sunni muslims are trying to take over the country.
The Alawites are a powerful minority and control the country backed by minority Christians and Druze, Russia and Shiite Iran
If Assad, the Alawite leader is overthrown by the Sunnis; the Alawites , Christians, Shiites and Druze will be toast. - tom
