I don't think Assad would do this when he is winning....I think the rebels would do this when they are losing!


Assad always says he's winning, but if you do research on specific areas like Aleppo or Jobar, you'll see that it's just not the case. Pick one area and do an individual analysis. If Assad had the ability to win, or even gain ground, he would have done it already and this war would have died down to quiet roar by now.

We've seen what it looks like when rebels win..

Saddam fleeing in limo's hiding in the ground in a spider ole..
Gaddafi being dragged from a drainpipe..
Mubarak lying in a hospital bed motionless..

Assad is giving interviews with FOX NEWS.. He's got Russia publicly backing him, which seems to have infinitely more clout that the covertly USA backed REBELS

Assad's army and Iranian/Lebanese Hezbollah annihilated the rebels and took ground.....the rebels have struggled to get any major victories since.

Assad's broke, he's got Iran funding him.. Russia providing the materials and Hezbollah providing the troops to assist the SA and the rebels cannot match it.

He's butchering people, but he's butchering the enemy!..
the rebels are just out of control animals half the time!..

Yet I've never seen anyone on ATS back up this claim with any resource or support other than their opinion.

What would you rather?
Forged internet articles?
Or Murdoch Media reports?

There's only a select few that really know whats going on, neither of us are part of that and they'd never leave evidence of it laying around.

logically, you wouldn't strike your capital city with Sarin gas, then try to blame the apparently inadequate freedom fighters .. and for what? what logical reason can Assad have for gassing his capital?
to beat a sporadically formed rebel attack on some useless neighborhood that could have been contained with conventional forces? to shock the world and or rebels into surrender?

what a load of crap, there's only one logical explanation here!

You must have forgotten that the chemical attacks didn't happen IN Damascus. They happened on the OUTSKIRTS of Damascus, the areas that were rebel controlled surrounding the capitol.

Ghouta is a suburb of Damascus that was gassed, it doesn't really matter if it was on the fringe of Damascus or in the inner suburbs, 5km this way or 3km that way.... its Damascus!

Maybe it would help to familiarize yourself with who's where and what progress is being made by each one along the way. A map is enclosed in link.


Fighting in Major Cities
Syria's three largest cities have remained battlefields over the past months, with number-one metropolis Aleppo still bitterly divided between the government, the rebels, and Kurdish groups. The Syrian army has made further inroads into Homs, and now controls most but not all of the key central city.

While central Damascus remains mostly out of reach for the rebels, fierce battles have continued to be waged over the capital city's many suburbs (see a map of rebel and government control in the city from two weeks ago).

Broad Trends
An expert quoted in a New York Times article last month estimated that Syria's rebel groups now control 60-70% of the country's land, but only 40% of the population, due to their greater success at controlling rural areas than holding major cities.

In fact, let's look at an article dated August 9th, less than two weeks before the chemical attacks in Ghouta...


"The Opposition Advances in Damascus"



Despite significant gains in Homs province, Syrian government forces are struggling against opposition forces on other fronts. In Damascus, opposition forces have mounted a major offensive, entering many government-held areas and gaining new ground. Although the government has gone on the counter-offensive, opposition forces have been able to maintain their advance and prevented government forces from storming a number of critical areas in the city. These gains reveal the extent to which the opposition is able to adapt to changes in the operating environment, and prove that the Syrian government lacks the capacity to conclusively defeat the insurgency despite increased assistance from external allies.

I would like to think that no one is supporting Assad or the extremist rebels, but supporting the moderate rebels. The question is whether or not the moderate rebels can keep the extremists from turning Syria into another Islamic state. Assad brought this on himself when he open fired on non-violent protesters in the beginning. If we're lucky, Assad will turn everything over to a newly elected President next May when his term is up.

If anything good came out of this civil war, it was a change in the constitution removing Assad's Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party from being the only party allowed in power. We'll see how well that's adhered to come May and whether the Muslim Brotherhood will accept the fact that they are not allowed to enter into the race if they try to enter based on religious pretexts.

Thats a shallow statement, do you see whats happening in Libya right now? the Muslim Brotherhood controls it. Yeah Getting rid of Assad and Christians to what a great plan.

How about not supporting ANY murderer?



Cause if you think this man, his family, or any of his troops haven't killed innocent people then you yourself would be a hypocrite.


Supporting Assad is like supporting Obama.

That's the truth. These warmongers and power hungry leaders will do everything to be in control.

Don't support this man. Support humanity, and the innocent victims.

It looks like you need to go visit the thread regarding the rebels who are fighting each other right now. Not every rebel group is teamed up with Al Qaeda or other known terrorist organizations.

You do realize 100% of the Syrian National Council are members of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood.

It must be nearly a week you haven't replied how come?

There are no moderate Syrian Rebels cant you get it yet? or are you that hell bent on staying the same the status quo as the Mainstream News Media outlets, Elizabeth O'Bagy?

The MSM outlets are now using a (catch term) they are announcing the rebels as "Nationalist Islamist" yet the the majority of the SNC members are members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

When will you get it?
