Posted on 06/26/2012 2:51:15 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Tuesday that his country, in the grips of an anti-regime uprising now in its 16th month, is in a real situation of war.
We are witnessing a real situation of war, the state news agency SANA quoted Assad as telling a meeting of the new Syrian cabinet.
However, he insisted that when one is in a state of war, all our policies and capabilities must be used to secure victory.
Meanwhile, AFP reported, the United States on Tuesday said that a desperate Assad was slowly losing his grip on power, citing recent defections of army officers and soldiers to neighboring Turkey and Jordan.

The Muslim Brotherhood and Middle East Caliphate.

Followed by the mass slaughter of the Alawites and the Christians.
This, Assad is better then the alternative.
Seems to be a normal situation in the mooselimb world these days.
It's quite the coincidence....
Nothing to see here, move along now. /s
“Are you ready for totaler kreig?”,the state news agency SANA quoted Assad as telling a meeting of the new Syrian cabinet.
“Yea, hail Victory!” they cheered.
Let’s see how Obama will spin this one! Anything bad for America is good for him, yes?
No Sh@t Assad. Perhaps you should have contemplated a little more before shooting down a TAF Recon F-4. The Turks have been itching for a reason to kick your a@@ for years because of Syrian support for the PKK......now they have it. And if your buds, the Iranians get in the way, they will mow them down like a power mower in short grass as well......Have a nice day.
What waits in the wings is this spilling into Iraq and then Iran.
Iran said it wanted a Caliphate. All these uprisings and Arab Spring hoe downs are hurting everyone but Iran.
The Kurds declaring a state in the middle of Iran/Iraq/Syria and Turkey might be the worst thing that could happen. Someone will have to stop them and the winner of that would then have a foothold in 4 countries.
Oh, did I mention we are no longer a fighting force there?
That appears to be a veiled threat to use his vast quantities of biological and chemical WMD.
He better think that through very carefully as well. The Turks have NATO allocated nukes, and techically would be authorized to use them in the event of a biological and chemical attack. The Turks will be shaking hands with the Israelis at the Golan Heights if Assad is that stupid.
Assad is far from pro-US, but he has protected the Syrian Christians from the jihadists. In return the Christians have supported him. If he falls and is replaced by another jihadist nutjob, it will be very bad for the Christians there.
That is true, the nukes are at Incirlik, according to Wiki....which means the nukes are probably not at Incirlik. I worked in Diyarbakir for two years...look that one up....;)
Don't screw with the Turks....;)
I've seen that posted many times....so I have to ask. How many Christians are in Turkiye?
In the Muslim world, the Turks are probably the group you’d least would want to mess with.
Wikipedia puts the number at approximately 75,000.
