What will happen in Aleppo?

Probably what happened in Damascus – the rebels will lose. But the rebels look to be doing well on TV? 

That’s because they are winning the propaganda war better than the real war. But why is the Syrian army shelling its own people? 

You could just as easily ask why are the rebels using the Syrian people as human shields? It’s a dirty civil war and the rebels sometimes choose to fight in residential areas.  

So what do Syrians want? 

Hard to tell. But for sure this is not Egypt – there are no Tahrir Squares or vast protests against the regime.There is no discernible sign in any of the big cities – Homs, Aleppo and Damascus for example,that the people even wish to rise up against the regime …”
