Saudi Arabia allegedly fitted ambulances and other vehicles with anti-gas/anti-chemical filtering systems in preparation for Free Syrian Army chemical attacks blamed on him.

Perhaps a major false flag incident looms. Daily headlines suggest Assad's days are numbered. 

UK Foreign Secretary William Hague claims "some evidence" he saw indicates Assad is readying chemical weapons for use on opposition fighters.

He's seen nothing, of course, but media scoundrels don't explain. At the same time, Israeli Vice Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon said "we see no sign that this weaponry is being pointed at us."

Over the weekend, US and Russian diplomats met in Geneva. Foreign Minister Lavrov said doing so doesn't mean Moscow thinks Assad's fall is inevitable.

"We are not (discussing) Assad's fate," he said. "And all attempts to present the situation in any other way are unscrupulous, even for diplomats from those countries which are well-known for their intention to distort facts in their favor."

Lavrov accused US officials of spreading false rumors about Russia softening its position on Syria. 

"US representatives started to make statements hinting that Russia is changing its position," he said. "This is not true. We have not changed our position, and only on these conditions we agreed to hold the Geneva meeting."

"We said we would be ready under one condition: that the basis of such brainstorming sessions will be formed by the Geneva document, without any additions, without any ultimatums, without any preconditions like President Assad's resignation."

Lavrov referred to the June Geneva meeting joint statement. It said any future Syrian transition government "could include members of the present government and the opposition and other groups and shall be formed on the basis of mutual consent."

Washington twisted the language to mean a future Syrian government must exclude Assad. Doing so, of course, disregards the will of most Syrians. 

The present government has strong popular support. The longer conflict rages, the more it grows.

On December 9, RIA Novosti headlined "Russia Rules Out Libyan Scenario in Syria." On Sunday, Lavrov said:

"We'll not allow the Libyan experience to be reproduced in Syria. Unfortunately our Western partners have departed from the Geneva accords and are seeking the departure of".Assad."

He added that Syrians alone should choose their government.
