Unfortunately, this article ignores Syria's demographics and essentially advocates for minority Alawi-Kurdish rule over the Sunni Arabs. It also ignores that Assad is dependent upon some 30,000 to 35,000 Iranian-led foreign Shia mercenaries to preserve his rule. Are these foreigners to stay in order to enforce "stability"?

UK Delegation OPCW @UK_OPCW
In OPCW mtg on chem weapon use in Syria. Russia agrees that sarin or sarin-like substance used. Says no grounds to disbelieve OPCW finding.


Actually interesting in that it was Assad who gave the soil samples taken at the impact point that were the confirming evidence....that caused a major fallout among Assad online supporters who then claimed the soil samples were "fake"....

Azor...now do you finally realize just how correct I and CrowBat have been? We critiqued Obama ME FP because he did not understand what was actually ongoing inside Syria and Trump has no idea what the heck he is doing for any FP.

This will now drive FSA into the open arms of HTS/AQ and the US will be ground into the dust of Syria, Iraq and ME for the coming decade as Is reverts back to it's basic roots, guerrilla warfare and working with disillusioned Sunni's about US bombs raining on them and the high number of Shia killings of Sunni civilians.

Trump just provided Putin a major win and the question is why?

WINNERS, Assad, Putin and Khamenei.

LOSSERS Trump and DoD and DoS and Us allies
