The Dynamics of Syria’s Civil War

Abstract: 
For the Foreseeable Future, No Government Will Be Able to Rule All of What Was the Modern State of Syria Assad’s forces, with external support, appear to have stalemated a fragmented rebel movement, but Assad will not be able to restore his authority throughout the country. Rebel forces nominally control areas of the country where government forces have withdrawn, but they too will be unable to impose their authority throughout Syria, even if Assad falls.
