Russia is already backing away from their relationship with Syria saying they’re not opposed to a new government in Syria (see video above). It’s hard to tell what kind of negotiations Americans, the Israelis and Europe have had with President Putin … but unless this is just political rope a dope … we’re negotiating some form of deal.
At the core – our covert war with Syria is about Iran. You don’t hear much about it … you will mostly hear about the lost lives of innocents. You’ll see graphic images of people dead in the streets and their homes due to the hard fist of the al-Assad regime. But you’re not hearing the backstory.
And it’s news to me that now rebel forces are even taking the fight to Bashar al-Assad’s government in Damascus. That’s a big deal because that’s the epicenter of power in Syria … you can’t have a Bashar al-Assad government without tight control in Damascus. So – you have Russia backing away from it’s tight relationship with the al-Assad government under pressure from Europe, US, Gulf States and Israel in addition to internal pressure by Russians of Syrian descent and Russian Jews.
Putin is concerned with the geopolitics of it all but they can’t prove publicly that the “Friends of Syria” group is financing the mercenaries who are looking to overthrow the government even though they know that to be true in private. The average person is just out to lunch on this – it would be comical if it weren’t so scary. And all of our support for the international terrorism that is the “Free Syria Army” … is just one step towards making Iran our 51st state (as I’ve said many times).

Bullets and shrapnel shells smashed into homes in the Syrian capital overnight, as troops battled rebels in the streets, in the heaviest fighting yet in Damascus. The violence marked an increased boldness among rebels in taking their fight against the regime of President Bashar Assad to the center of his power.
At least 42 civilians were killed in violence around the country outside Damascus on Saturday, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based activist group. Among them were 20, including nine women and children, who died in heavy, pre-dawn shelling in the southern city of Daraa, where the uprising against Assad began in March 2011. The group’s figures could not be independently confirmed.
The Damascus violence was a dramatic shift, since the capital has been relatively quiet compared with other Syrian cities throughout the uprising. Damascus, Assad’s stronghold, and the northern city of Aleppo, the country’s largest, are under the firm grip of security forces.
