article imageOp-Ed: Russia admits to Assad’s likely end

By Eliot Elwar     Dec 14, 2012 in World
Mideast crisis continues as Russia admits to Bashar al-Assad 'losing control' of Syria. Syria's chemical weapons could be ready for usage as Assad's forces fire scud missiles at rebels. Assad could be removed from power before or during March 2013.
Bashar al-Assad is losing control over Syria and his opponents could win, according to Russia' deputy foreign minister. While Mikhail Bogdanov never issued any signal that Russia will support international sanctions against Assad's brutal regime, his remarks indicated that Moscow has begun positioning itself for a regime change in Syria, according to the Telegraph news. If the rebels win the civil war, their victory will dramatically shift the diplomatic landscape and bring enormous momentum for the Syrian opposition, according to the Chron news.
US House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers stated recently that Syria's chemical weapons could be used at "a moment's notice" and the international community should not accept any assurances from Syrian officials that they will not be used, according to the Jerusalem Post. Assad may attempt to start Armageddon with chemical weapons before he departs for Cuba or Venezuela.
Assad’s forces fire short range ballistic missiles (SRBM) at rebels. This move represents a significant escalation in the fighting, which has already killed over 40,000 civilians in a nearly two-year-old conflict. This move reveals increased desperation on the part of the Assad government, according to Israel National News. This SRBM attack could be a warm-up for the coming fight with Israeli and American forces.
