With the current instability in Syria, the failure of Assad to control the riots, and the increasing criticism from the US, one ponders two questions:
How long can Assad evade civil war? And is the Middle East on the verge of another conflict?
The regime has definitely not learned any lessons from Libya, but seems to be following the Iranian example of mass arrests and killings of unruly
citizens in order to keep them under control, unfortunately this strategy does not seem to be working as the situation worsens by the day, and
increasing anger continues among the people that had enough of the state of fear they’ve been living under for the last 40 years.
I can say with certainty that when it blows in Syria it won’t just stop there, but it’s going be a long and a nasty war involving more players
that seek interest in this corner stone country.
So stay tuned for the latest events because you never know what’s coming!
