At the “Strategic Challenges in the Eastern Mediterranean” conference, Prof. Eyal Zisser of Tel Aviv University gives an account of the “miracles” which saved Assad’s regime and turned him into the “Liberator” of Aleppo: Obama’s decision not to strike, the Russian intervention, and now (perhaps) the ascension of President Trump. He suggests three possible outcomes to the civil war in Syria: a Spanish outcome (total victory for one side), an Afghan one (continued insurgency in the periphery), and a Libyan result (chaos and disintegration).
