Re: Syria - It ain't over till it's over

When I started this thread more than 7 years ago, "The Game" was popular, mostly non violent , demonstrations against Assad.

Would the opposition be better than Assad ? probably not
Would the opposition relinquish Syria's claims for the Golan - ditto.

btw - the Golan has been Israeli for more than 50 years, Syrian for less than 20.

7 years later, Syria has torn itself to pieces. same as Lebanon did in the 70-80s. Maybe the sheer war fatigue will bring quiet to what's left of Syria - but medium to long term the prospects of long term stability are very low.
