"Syria's former prime minister Riyad Hijab claims Bashar al-Asssad's regime is on the point of collapse, having lost control of two-thirds of the country.
In his first public appearance since he fled Damascus with his family a week ago, Hijab urged other top officials to follow his example and defect. He told a press conference in the Jordanian capital, Amman, the Syrian army needed to "take the side of the people".
"I assure you, from my experience and former position, that the regime is collapsing, spiritually and financially, as it escalates militarily," Hijab said. "It no longer controls more than 30% of Syrian territory.""
We called it right here on the WND about a month ago. There will be no U.S. military involvement. Syria will go the way of Libya without direct military assistance from the West. - Wes
