Bashar al-Assad’s End Game. The Arab Uprising, popularly known as Arab Spring movement against the governments of the Arab world caused by the dissatisfaction over the rule of governments. This Civil War taken down many governments and successfully installed new governments in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, and Yemen.
Also minor protests in Lebanon, Mauritania, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Djibouti and Western Sahara and Major Protests in Bahrian and Syria are ongoing.
Syrian president Bashar al-Assad is right now cornered in the country’s capital Damascus and is thinking to use chemical weapons over the rebels. President Barack Obama has given Syria’s regime a stark warning that any use of chemical weapons would be a “tragic mistake” for which “there will be consequences and you will be held accountable”
As Bashar al-Assad’s regime is not able to control the rebel’s uprising, they might resort to the final resort of using chemical weapons which will make the situation very ugly and the US intervention will be inevitable. In 2009, Damascus had become the Middle Eastern capital to visit: Nicolas Sarkozy, blazed the way for France and Europe; David Miliband and other EU foreign ministers followed.
Russia has also tried to lend a hand to Syrian rebels by dealing with them to oust Bashar al-Assad. Defection of Foreign Minister Jihad Makdissi and also shut down of the Internet. has shown that the allies of the nation have already started to believe that the end of Bashar al-Assad’s regime is near.
Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and Yemen have been successful in this civil war with sheer people’s power and the Internet. This civil war has left estimated 50,000 to 70,000 deaths in the Arab world. If Assad uses chemical weapons the death toll is going to rise much higher than it is right now. The question is not “Will rebels win the war?”, the real question is “Will Assad die with Rebel bullet or US bullet?”.
