It's about removing all regional rivals before focusing on other areas. It's about unchallenged global hegemony one destroyed country at a time. Imagine what's coming if this insanity isn't stopped.

Russia and China comprise the final frontier. Humanity may not survive war against either. Policy makers only consider goals, not consequences. 

Assad so far held firm. New Orient Center for Strategic Policies contributor Ghaleb Kandil believes Syria won't fall. Hopefully he's right. Insurgents on their own can't match superior Syrian military strength and tactical capability.

They've been routed in one city and town after another. They keep infiltrating through porous borders. They meet the same fate as earlier fighters.

"The crushing defeat suffered by the armed gangs throughout Syria reveals that the Syrian Arab army which was built on solid ideological bases quickly drew the lessons of the war and developed strategies of urban and rural counter-guerilla, which allowed it to strike the extremists despite the massive military, material, financial and media means that were generously offered to them by the coalition of dozens of countries, not to forget the sanctions adopted against the Syrian people and state outside the context of the United Nations."

Key is popular pro-Assad support. Kandil explains. Most Syrians know US-led imperialism targets them. They know what happened in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. They want no part of Western subjugation. They support political autonomy. 

They're willing to fight for it. Thousands of young people volunteer for army service. It's their struggle. It's too important to lose.

Imagine if foreign forces invaded America, Britain, France, or other European countries. Imagine if they murdered pro-government loyalists and committed unspeakable atrocities. Mass numbers would willingly fight them.

So would internal government opponents. Policies they disapprove of pale compared to what's likely under Western control with killer gangs terrorizing people freely.

The real face of Washington's hired guns reflects "rape, executions, massacres, pillaging"." In comparison, Assad looks saintly. He's their bottom line defense against what no one would tolerate.

America won't quit easily. Neither will Assad, his loyalists, and the great majority of Syrians wanting peace, stability, and independence, free from Western domination. They're not about to roll over without a fight for their lives and well-being.

Assad calls Syria "the cornerstone" of anti-Western resistance. 

During his weekend meeting with Iran's Shura Council National Security and Foreign Policy Committee chairman, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, he said Syrians will keep fighting despite "concerted attempts otherwise by the West and some neighboring countries."

Syrians won't let "this scheme".pass and (will resist to) reach its goals whatever the cost." Boroujerdi added that both countries have common interests. Each depends on the other. 

They're in constant touch. Iran provides support. It's important to do so. Beating Washington at its own game takes rock hard resistance. At the same time, the struggle is far from over. 

Who'll prevail isn't clear. Clarity may be many months away, even years. Syrian suffering won't end unless they prevail. Famed Chicago community organizer Saul Alinsky once said the way to beat organized money is with organized people.
