Assad Confirmed Dead, Iran Attempts To Control Syria Army (?)

By Israel News Agency Staff

Jerusalem, Israel --- March 24, 2013 … Russian media sources have confirmed that Syria President Bashar Assad was shot by an Iranian bodyguard Saturday night.

"The lone assassination pumped several bullets at point blank range into Assad," said the source. "Assad was rushed to Al-Shami Hospital in Damascus in critical condition. He died on the operating table from heart failure resulting from massive blood loss."

An Israeli security analyst believes the report to be accurate.

"In the last 24 hours have we seen Assad? Any photographs or video? No. Nor will we see any as loyalists who are closest to Assad have been threatened if any leaked photos or reports reach Western media. Iran is attempting to take control of the Syrian army and its wealth of weapons as Syrian solders are now deserting in mass. I don't believe that the West will allow any Iranian control of Damascus."

"There was a reason why Barack Obama visited Israel. And it was not for a photo op with Miss Israel. I don't think Netanyahu would apologize to Turkey or to anyone. But if was between a dead Assad and saying sorry to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan I think there was no hesitation in making that telephone call to Ankara."

The Israeli analyst said that several events have taken place in the last 24 hours including the Syrian army shooting at an Israeli border patrol unit. It is believed that this action was coordinated by Assad loyalists who stood outside the dead President's hospital room to deflect the global media from the assassination and to pull Israel into a war with the Syrian army. The leader of the Western-backed Syrian opposition coalition announced he was resigning.

Lesson learned: if you can't find trustworthy bodyguards from among your own population -- forcing you to turn to another country supply the individuals who supply physical protection to yourself and your family -- you're not really the leader of your country. You're something more like a puppet.

If it should come to pass that the supplier of your personal security decides it's time for you to move on... well, on you move.

On the one hand, it couldn’t have happened to a nastier guy.

On the other hand, this is really bad news. More Muzzie terrorists take over yet another country. Churches burned, Christians killed, Israel threatened.

Obama is smiling.

I imagine a big question is whether the Iranians will evacuate, or have orders to die in place. Both Russia and the US would possibly guarantee any evacuation of Iranians, just to get them the heck out.

After that problem is over, the big issue will be Hezbollah and the new Syrian government. Being cut off from their sugar daddy will leave Hezbollah in crisis mode, and they may even try to take over the Lebanese government, since a Sunni government in Syria will not be friendly to them.

The next hundred hours are going to be interesting.

Yeah, this is shaping up like Arafat, going from death to life and back again a couple of times a day for who knows how long.

Sounds like a rumor that got out of hand via social media.

If he were really dead, things would be very chaotic to where the major news outlets would not ignore it.

Hey, let's not leave out the parts about long range sniper rifle, high-powered, high-powered scope, spray and pray, weapons of choice of violent crime youth gangs supplied by the NRA, weapons of war, cop-killer bullets, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. It's the leftist extremist holy mantra.

Good point.

I guess the Swiss Guard owes its allegiance to Someone greater than nations.
