What’s reflected in this story is what was predicted and foretold would happen in another post, less than two days ago. This regime is not going down without making sure everyone else in the region suffers.
The most senior Syrian politician to defect to the opposition has told the BBC the regime will not hesitate to use chemical weapons if it is cornered.
Asked if he thought President Assad might use chemical weapons against the opposition, Mr Fares told BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner in an interview in Qatar that he would not rule it out, describing Mr Assad as “a wounded wolf and cornered”.
“There is information, unconfirmed information of course, that chemical weapons have been used partially in the city of Homs,” he said.
“It doesn’t occur to any Syrian, not only me, that Bashar al-Assad will let go of power through political interventions… He will be ousted only by force,” Mr Fares said.
