Ass-ad is in a race with time to kill and destroy as much as possible before the world starts the next round of bargaining on Syrian blood. At least 73 martrys have fallen in the shelling taking place in the following provinces – Daraa, Damascus Countryside, Homs, Hama, Idlib, Aleppo, Deir Ezzor and Lattakia. Today did have some bad news for Ass-ad – Brigadier Mustafa Tlass, son of Hafez’s Defence Minister and a Presidential Guard commander has reportedly fled the country. Also today was a black day for the hypocritical world, with Wikileaks showing how Western companies are still working to improve his regime’s capabilities even while Switzerland banned arms exports to UAE because grenades delivered years ago maybe ended up in hands of FSA.
