    with the FSA for months, and you know there are a lot of "defections in place" you have cause to be paranoid. The FSA clearly is operating with better intel than the regime.

    Qaddafi managed to get some moles pretty well placed in the rebel army, so far I haven't heard that about the FSA and they seem to know what they are doing in Aleppo.

      I loved the part about the PM having been friendly all this time. The Assads have to be crapping their pants right now. And any non-Allawite, too. Because when the paranoia ramps up, look out. FSA is winning the psychological game, for sure. The defection of the PM was a big deal.

      Big, but still not necessarily a game-changer. What i want to know is where's Maher Assad? When he's eliminated, you can stick a fork in it.

      (I'd love for them to take that fucker alive.)
