Well, Syria is experiencing heavy fighting in and around the Capital city with major leaders from military and civilian leadership defecting.
Lebanon, which was the scene of 15 Years of civil war
is experiencing renewed
fighting. Around the region Turkey has troops on the border, Egypt is being accused of moving considerably more hardware toward the border than was
agreed to handle the cross border raids that have been going on and of course, instability all around is still the rule on Syrias other border with
Iran doesn't need much mention....that whole situation is what it is...although it looks like the Ayatollah is making an effort to settle
things...while other reports say the opposite. I suppose it's a case where action or lack of it will speak on that one. Although the fact Iran will
be absolutely purple passion IRATE when Assad goes down is not much question. It's their last Ally in the region.
So... Lebanon now joining the list of fighting makes the stability issue pretty much all around now and wider regional fighting is pretty valid to say
with this.....particularly when reports attribute it directly to pro/anti Assad people.
Of course though, as noted... I sincerely hope the cease fire established there after 12 dead and 100 wounded, holds. That's a whole lot of fighting
for that many wounded.... Not good.
