Syrian Signals: Assad 'ready for talks' after meeting Lavrov

Sahit Muja: Syria's brutal dictator on the run as rebels seized big control today. Bashar al-Assad has retreated to the Syrian coast, his wife Asma Assad and couple’s three children has escaped to Moscow, Russia a sign that her husband’s grip on Syria is crumbling.

Massive defections from Assad forces and rebels are flooding Damascus. The head of the Supreme Council of the Free Syrian Army said Maher al-Assad, the younger brother of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, was injured in the Damascus explosion that killed key officials yesterday, Al Arab reported.

More than 250 people mostly civilians were killed in violence across Syria today by Assad's regime . Assad’s days are obviously numbered. The "Friends of Syria" are supporting rebels with money and weapons. The group has more than 60 members including the United States, Turkey, France, Britain, Germany, along with Arab nations Saudi Arabia and Qatar. In day five of the battle for Damascus, opposition forces has attack on regime troops and claimed to have taken control of borders in Iraq and Turkey.

A fierce fighting in the capital Damascus continued today. The rebels have gained some momentum as the regime has weakened and more troops from Assad's army have defected. Russia and China vetoed a UN Security Council resolution that would have threatened sanctions against Syria's leadership.. It was the third time Russia and China vetoed Security Council resolutions that are intended to pressure the government to leave power.

Their veto of this resolution shows a complete lack of concern for human life and a general disregard for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and continues a disturbingly wrongly held belief that nations and their leaders are not accountable for their actions. This latest failure at diplomacy points to a growing likelihood that Syria's fate will be decided by bloody civil war.

Free Syrian Army seized control on Thursday of a crossing on the border with neighboring Turkey, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. This is a good sign for the fall of the brutal dictator Assad. On after another, all dictators must fall for the establishment of democracy to serve the greater interest of the people . These dictators have been suppressing the rights and economic opportunities of the people for generations.

The time has come in this century, when the rising spirit of the people bring this dictators down to establish new governments of the people, for the people and by the people.
