    The Russian point (and by extension also Chinese and Iranian probably) was NEVER to make Assad a president for life. In this 21st centry nobody with a clear conscious would think of it. And I believe Mr. Assad as a western educated Doctor who had no political ambition before the death of his elder brother Bassel, would not want that either.

    The point was always that the future of Syria and its president should be choosen by Syrian people, be it Mr. Assad or somebody else. The west and Saudi camp has always from the start wanted a new political landscape EXCLUDING Mr. Assad and his party and the people he represent or prefer his rule, that is about half of the population (Alawite, Christian and Kurds). That is not going to happen, as the west and Saudi has pushed the civil war to this far and bloody, there is no way back, these populations are fighting for survival.

    As a matter of fact, Mr. Assad will step down sooner or later according to the law (not imposed by foreigners), but not under threat from abroad.

    I think one should not interpret things to ones liking but to take the words for their principles. To me, that has never changed. We should especially be careful with the words from these main-stream western or Gulf medias for they have been spinning around all these years.

    And to my knowledge the pressure from some country is not impressive at all lately. We all know the red line on sand well.

    Nice post, I totally agree.
    May I also add ... ...

    1) China is wholeheartedly supporting Russia, Iran, and Syria
    ( Assad, Alawite, Christian, Kurds, and Shiite ), and
    peaceful Sunni communities BEHIND the scene.

    2) There is a stinking, SEWAGE RAT who keep delivering and ferrying
    these maliciously negative spinned doctor news against
    ( Assad, Alawite, Christian, Kurds, and Shiite ), IRAN, RUSSIA alliances.

    now the actions may be focused on cutting off the supply line instead of taking land. It would be great to block the supply route and wait for a few months. UAV would do a great job for that.
