Was the strategy of the Syrian rebels a "rope a dope" for the Syrian army, and they fell for it?
It would appear that the rebels were being helped by the US to repel the Syrian advance. A sort of "rope a dope" strategy.
How do you see that the fight is continuing?
Will Assad never get all of his country back?
Are the Russians not effective as Syria's ally?
What will the rebels call their territory once it is secured?
