    Of the initial Anti-Assad forces are now fighting along side the Syrian Army, and the Assad Militias. Regionally, in the anti-Assad enclaves, there are unofficial truces between the Regime Forces and some of the Anti-Assad forces, while everything from minor skirmishes to full on genocidal wars are taking place between the Islamicists and the FSA. In some of the villages, the Islamicists just spend their time killing other Islamicists, who just arn't Islamic enough.

    It's funny, the Jihadi's currently tearing Syria apart, are the same Sunni groups who defeated the US in Iraq. Now they are neck deep with the Military, Security Services and Governments of Jordan, Bahrain, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. If the past plays out into the future, Jordan and Bahrain's days are numbered, and Turkey and Saudi Arabia are in for a world of hurt and pain. Saudi Arabia much less than Turkey.

    Assad with probably win, eventually, barring Western or Turkish direct military involvement, as there is no Syrian Free Army, and the Jihadi's are anathema to any form of functioning Civil Government. It won't be Allewite Baathism, but probably a more inclusive form of a Republic. There will probably be some purges and executions, but Syria has been broken so bad, lost too many people, bled too much, for more blood to be the answer to putting it back together.
