"... Syria is already in the middle of a transition. Much of Syrian territory has been liberated and remains beyond the reach of Syrian troops.... Assad has lost his claim of sovereignty...... Assad is no longer the president of Syria. He could be more aptly described as the governor of Damascus and some of its suburbs; Assad doesn't seem able to take a step beyond the walls of his palace ....... the government no longer in control of Syrian border crossings with Turkey and Iraq, Assad has lost the ability to preserve the country's sovereignty over strategically significant geographical regions....."
