These and similar claims are baseless. For days, they've been circulating. Repetition makes people believe them. 

Heightened tensions suggests full-scale intervention looms. Ravaging Syria may follow. A potential bloodbath looks possible. It  may exceed the worst of Libya.

On December 10, Voice of Russia (VoR) said Islamist rebels claim they seized a key north Syria army base at Sheikh Suleiman.

German Federal Intelligence Service head Gerhard Schindler believes Assad's government is close to falling. "Armed rebels are coordinating better, which is making their fight".more effective," he claims.

On Friday, a new unified command was established. Extremist elements are involved. Estimates suggest two-thirds of its representatives are Muslim Brotherhood and Salafist allies. 

Washington wants Islamist fascist regimes throughout the region. It goes all-out to prevent democracies.

"Evidence is mounting that the regime in Damascus is now in its final phase," said Schindler.

On December 10, the Syrian Free Press presented a different view on the ground. "The Armed Forces Continue Targeting Terrorists and Their Hideouts," it headlined.

Many foreign fighters were killed. The Aleppo al-Bakkarh area was "completely cleared." Large stocks of weapons and munitions were seized or destroyed.

Fighting continues in other areas. Army units inflicted "heavy losses" on terrorists in Daraya and around Aleppo.

VoR said the Al-Watan news service reported that about 1,000 insurgents were killed in a battle east of Aleppo. Middle East expert Viktor Nadein-Rayevsky said foreign military intervention perhaps is imminent.

It "could be staged in a way to look like the opposition's offensive with foreign mercenaries taking part in the operation."

Turkey and other countries bordering Syria may get involved. He stressed that "constructive negotiations are the only way to settle the crisis."

Washington won't tolerate them. Conflict was planned long ago to oust Assad. Signs suggest full-scale Western-led intervention looms.
