““The regime is not going to surrender,” said Robert Ford, former US ambassador to Syria from 2011 to 2014 and now a senior fellow at the Washington-based Middle East Institute. “This is going to be a long war. Not a short war. We’re not near the end. We may still be only in the first half.”………..
Ambassador Robert Ford said: ““The regime is not going to surrender,” , which elicits a loud WTF from me. That is shocking news indeed. If the regime is on the march and winning, along with its allies, as the media report now, why should they surrender, pray tell?
Unless it is because Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Joe Lieberman, Saudi princes and the Qumquat of Qatar said so four years ago.
