www.washingtonpost.com]Israeli officials say Assad is doomed

In a shift, Israeli officials are welcoming the prospect that Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad, will be overthrown, an event Defense Minister Ehud Barak says could be weeks away.

“The Assad family, through their own behavior, have lost their last drop of legitimacy and put themselves beyond the point of no return with their brutal slaughter of their own people. He has ceased to be something relevant.”


“It might take many weeks,” Barak added, “ but it’s not a matter of months or years.”

So the Israeli officials say that Assad are numbered not in years but in weeks eh? what are the going push turkey to bomb Syria? because thats what i see they are going to try to do.

Interesting that the article mentions this

(It will strengthen Turkey, which is a natural rival to Iran’s hegemonic intentions. …This is something positive for Israel.”)

positive for Israel eh? i highly doubt that

(Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon warned against such a policy, arguing that Assad was “the devil we know,” and could be replaced by the Muslim Brotherhood.)

Yeah i believe that and that is brought you by John McCain and the western NGO the IRI.

I am not surprised they want take down Russias Assad as the Israeli's John McCain the elites want to take over the med east with Amerca as the major oil supplier.

However if a war does start in Syria it will be a alot more worse then the one in Libya because if you attack russias supply zone then you actually start a war with russia.


EDITED:Sorry for the linking mix up there dont know what went wrong .

I think it is a pretty likely scenario that the Syrians will overthrow Assad on their own, probably with some covert support and such. NATO forces intervening directly would probably set off a powder keg

I thought Syria didn't have any oil exports. I actually thought that Syria was close to Russia because they buy a lot of weapons off of the Russians. I'm probably wrong but this is only information I have learned off here.

I will continue to push the notion that no one will invade Syria. it is Iran's proxy.
and NATO won't touch it with Russia as emboldened as it is, not after South Ossetia.

the Syrian elites are doing this to themselves in a desperate last act to maintain power and restart the public's perceptions.

of course covert operations are in play, but we don't know exactly what that means. the covert op could be long over, and could've been started with the Arab spring's beginnings with social media and the pursuit of a fake freedom.

Oh please Russia...If push came to shove I am sure Russia would put its hands in his pockets and turn around and walk away (metaphorically speaking of course), pretending like nothing happened OR they are just going to bicker with NATO, U.S and Israel and try to get something done that way which won't happen. Syria had it coming. Just a thought.

They probably would back down, but I doubt they would forget it.

The Muslim Brotherhood is a c.i.a front group just like the ZETAS and JUAREZ CARTELS-

It's safe to say that Assad is doomed in one way or another. His days are numbered whether you agree with what's happening or not.

2008 South Ossetia War.
en.wikipedia.org...


During the night of 7 to 8 August 2008, Georgia launched a large-scale military offensive against South Ossetia, in an attempt to reclaim the territory. Georgia claimed that it was responding to attacks on its peacekeepers and villages in South Ossetia, and that Russia was moving non-peacekeeping units into the country. The Georgian attack caused casualties among Russian peacekeepers, who resisted the assault along with Ossetian militia


So you see, the Russians will not backdown that easily.

Georgia was acting on behalf of the United States in these actions as Saakashvili is an American educated plant during the earlier coloured revolutions.
Also American analysts and weapons trainers were on the ground to study the Russian capabilities.

This "war", was between Russia and America but fought between their proxys.



so tell me, why you think Russia will back down, now?

Take this from Hillary Clinton earlier this month


"A democratic transition includes more than removing the Assad regime. It means setting Syria on the path of the rule of law and protecting the universal rights of all citizens regardless of sect or ethnicity or gender," Clinton said as she began a meeting with Syrian opposition members in Geneva.

She said the opposition understood that Syrian minorities needed to be reassured that they would be better off "under a regime of tolerance and freedom."

LIbya was a Beta test for the new Obama Doctrine and Syria will be the first official action under this plan.

The thing that strikes me the most about this-- I just don't get how some people think they get to decide who on this planet gets to be slaughtered, and who should not be slaughtered. Why is it legitimate for anyone to slaughter anyone, be it their own people or another people?

SO where is this no fly zone that we have been hearing that was going to start every week for the last few months?

It seems the Syria protests have been quiet this last week, but to be honest the Syrians have never looked like actually doing much apart from protesting, rioting and getting killed.

Protestors cannot match tanks and artillery, and unless someone steps in to help them aka Libya then Syria's Assad isnt going anywhere.

Either the western powers saying such things are about to undertake a massive level of assistance, or there trying to force Assad to step down voluntarily under the threat of torture by his own people.

I guess they have forgotten that Assad said he'd burn the entire middle east starting with Israel if NATO tries to oust him. A few days ago he loaded scuds with chemical weapons. It won't be much longer before he starts dropping scuds on Israel. I put my money on Iran attacking Israel when he does that. Easiest way to defeat an enemy is to have him fighting on so many fronts he can't watch his back for the knife thats about slide between his ribs. I suspect hamas and hezbollah will get involved too.

Then we have Russia backing Syria, and China aiding Iran and Pakistan who is pissed off at NATO themselves in which China also backs.

Israel says that Assad is doomed? He aint the only one. Theres a whole lot of doomed people over there.

Sorry for the large quote. I wasn't aware that they were in with the U.S..I guess Russia has a bigger pair then I thought...BUT Assad is a tyrant with no respect for anyone but his own reign in the country, he is also just trying to carry on his fathers lineage as overlord leader. However you may be right about Russia, I was just throwing out my opinion.
