    I have a flash for MIke, the nation of Syria is already well on it’s way to being destroyed. So far, 110,000 dead, at least an equal number wounded, 2 million refugees in neighboring countries and another 4 million displaced within Syria and no end in sight. By the way, the notion that Assad was winning is vastly overstated. His forces control about 50% of the country, with the opposition and the Kurds controlling the rest. It appears that Assad will be content with an Alawite rump state which has been ethnically cleansed of Sunni Muslims, which activity is well underway.
