The president of Syria, Bashar al Assad, will eventually fall from power whether through the course of regular passing time or by the hands of the rebels. Al Assad has commited heinous crimes against his own people and doesn't deserve to rule over the country of Syria. At some point or another, he will lose his power.
In my opinion the regime of Bashar al Assad will not fall and there will be a diplomatic solution to the problems in Syria. The Russian element in the equation and the deliverance of the WMD's in the country will play a pivotal role in the outcome of the conflict. That is my hope.
