"Syria Bomb Attack Targets Assad Inner Circle." Exactly how they did it is a bit unclear, but the Syrian resistance went a long way to chopping the head off Assad's snake with a single, targeted attack.
The brother-in-law of Syrian president Bashar al Assad and his defence minister are among three killed by a bomb that struck at the heart of the country's security elite.Assef Shawkat and defence chief Daoud Rajha died in the blast at a meeting of senior security and government figures in Damascus.Syrian general Hassan Turkmani, a former defence minister and senior military official, was also killed, and several others were wounded.The attack, which sparked apparent celebrations in parts of the capital, is by far the most serious on the president's inner circle and some analysts believe it marks the "beginning of the end" for the Assad regime.
These were not just military commanders, but major supporters of the regime -- not to mention war criminals. My bet is that this marks the real turning point in this civil war. All tyrant-wannabes should take note. This is the way 4GW is fought. Don't start nothin', won't be nothin'.
