As we have seen in Libya, Iraq in 2003 and Afghanistan in 2001, WITHOUT MASSIVE AIR RAIDS by the USA/NATO ULTIMATELY AS THE DECISIVE FACTOR, over several weeks and months, a targeted regime cannot be defeated.
For this reason, the insurgency against Syria will continue.......BUT the Assad regime if it remains firm and strong...with the help of Russia, Iran and China can survive for a very long time, and in the process ELIMINATE MANY CIA trained Sunni Islamists, which will be a great boon for the Greater Middle East states and people......and benefit Russia and China.

UPDATE July 18, 2012 - Remember when NATO began "Operation Mermaid Dawn" in August of 2011 against Tripoli, Libya, the Western press initially reported Qaddafi's command structure either killed or captured. The initial effects of this propaganda devastated Libyans psychologically and the city of Tripoli fell almost overnight.
Photo: Qaddafi's son Saif Al-Islam "confirmed" to have been captured and ready to be transferred to the Hague by the illegitimate International Criminal Court, was actually very much free and leading efforts to drive out NATO backed Al Qaeda terrorists from Tripoli. After Western media sources attempted to portray Libya as "fallen," fighting would rage on for months, with NATO literally flattening cities in an effort to match tactical reality with their wartime propaganda.
The next day it turned out that Qaddafi and his command structure was very much intact and still fighting. The battle for Libya would stretch on for many months more - with NATO forced to destroy entire cities with daily aerial bombardments to finally claim "victory."
In Syria, NATO air support does not exist - and unless they can psychologically defeat Syrians, and panic the world into believing immediate foreign intervention is necessary, their latest "Mermaid Dawn" moment in Syria will fail. In addition to false reports of "massive defections" and "coups," readers must be aware of false flag chemical attacks (or mere reports of them) that will serve as impetus for NATO to militarily intervene.

Editor's Note: NATO has failed categorically to sell UNSC mandated military intervention to an increasingly unreceptive global public.
With fighting reported in Damascus and the Western media and the so-called "Free Syrian Army" hailing it as the "final battle" despite zero tactical victories in nearly a year and a half of fighting, the stage is being set instead for a massive psychological operation.
Such an operation was warned against in mid-June by Thierry Meyssan - and provides a somber warning more pertinent now than ever. Please re-read, re-post, and re-tweet this following article - ensure that NATO's "Mermaid Dawn" moment in Syria turns into a "Bay of Pigs" defeat instead.
