Barbara Starr Reporting from her paymasters at the Pentagon.

U.S. intelligence officials are describing the fighting in Syria as currently a stalemate between the regime and opposition forces, but those officials continue to believe Bashar al-Assad will eventually be forced from power.

"It doesn't seem either side is in a position to prevail or dominate," said a senior U.S. intelligence official. "We are looking at a protracted conflict."

if Syria begins to implode. At the moment there is no evidence minorities such as the Christians, Druze or Kurds are joining the opposition in larger numbers. The U.S. believes the opposition forces now numbers between 10,000 and 15,000.

"Both sides seem to be girding for a long struggle. The regime still believes it can prevail, but at the same time opposition is preparing for a long fight," one official said.

While at least Syria its proving to be that it isn't a second Libya so far, looks like the minorities in Syria aren't joining the opposition.

And why would Christians join the opposition? the opposition are the ones threatening Christians just because they are Christians just look at Egypt and how they were treated after the MB won and after the revolution.

Funny how Barbara Starr stats that the US officials are just hoping and believing that the rebels will win.

Its just like saying and believing that your going to win the lotto, even though winning a lotto chances are pretty slim to none.
