    Sorry bout that,


    1. Assad's family try to make a mad dash for the airport, yup, they get turned away with automatic weapons.
    2. Won't be long till there is a new form of dictatorship in Syria, then we can all have a huge party and celebrate!
    3. But having a new dictator, in Syria, do we really give a *Royal Shit*? :badgrin:
    4. LINK:'Assad's family attempts to escape Syria' - JPost - Middle East


    "The sources told Al-Masry-Al-Youm that "a convoy of official vehicles was seen heading to the airport in Damascus," before they were intercepted by brigades of army defectors.

    According to the source, there was a heavy exchange of fire between the security forces and the Free Syrian Army forces; the family were prevented from escaping and returned to the presidential palace."



    Regards,

    As long as the army is more afraid of him than they are of the population he can hang on. But I can see some of the upper levels of the army going screw this and changing sides.

    Shia/Sunni Tribal fights. They say things like "He's killing his own people", but to him, no he's not. Different tribes and beliefs.

    Tribal warfare is the name of this Arab Spring.
