Assad is winning his war?
When casualties exceed 170,000 so far, and his troops have lost almost 66,000 troops while killing 46,000 rebels (including 15,000 foreign jihadis), how can Assad's forces keep this burn rate up?
Also, Hezbollah has lost 500 dead while the Shia foreign legion has lost 1,600 dead. For Hezbollah, that's quite the body count.
If Assad's troops believe we are helping the rebels, will the prospect of a longer war break their spirit?
