Yeah, I’m guessing it’s almost over for the Assad government in Syria. The Associated Press reports that the Syrians fired SCUD missiles at the rebels, that’s kind of an indication that they’re on their last nerve;
Speaking on condition of anonymity, two officials said forces of President Bashar Assad have fired the missiles from the Damascus area into northern Syria. These officials asked not to be named because they weren’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly.
One official said there was no indication that chemical weapons were aboard the missiles. Officials have said over the past week that they feared rebel advances were prompting Assad to consider using chemical weapons.
It’s kind of a desperate move to start firing long range high explosives at your own people, so I have to guess we’re watching the end of the civil war, but, I’m pretty sure that there will be lots more blood.
