  • I've read in numbers they're about equal...Assad can only really rely on about 70,000 truly loyal motivated troops at most including the crack division run by his brother.

    Part of the reason they're relying on artillery and tanks to clear the streets from range is that they don't have the numbers of infantry to really storm the cities and districts held by the FSA

  • You forgot to mention the part about the FSA Troops being crazy religious fanatic zombie soldiers. That is how the FSA would have a chance of winning, they have crazy people for troops.

  • The "FSA" wouldn't even exist if it wasn't for forign countrys trying to control Syria and there link with Al Qaeda, which is their backbone.

  • Al Qaeda doesn't exist as we know it. It is a creation of the CIA during the Russian Afghan War. This Titel is stilled used for political orientation of special groups most known as radical islamist.

  • well, Assad, don't leave those things standing idle. USE them. Before you lose and Al Qaida get their hands on them.
    Then those weapons will be used against us and then I'll have to go to my local police station and lay a charge against Cameron and Hague for aiding terrorists leading to deaths of European citizens..

  • Numbers aren't as important in asymmetrical warfare. Guerrilla tactics make less more.

  • take out the 8,000 sam/anti air missiles, useless against the FSA

    if your not on the ground, you don't know the numbers

    this chart is very easily misleading

    we don't have a clue

  • Syrian army hardly using any of its capability. It has 550 airplanes but flies an 1970's Albatros trainer.

    And no mention of 50,000 scuds.

      Or the fact that Assad has a rather sizable chemical weapon cache and many of those scuds have warheads that will hold every bio-condiment from mustard all the way up to the deadliest of the bunch, VX.

  • 70.000 gorillas can easily defeat this army if they master the art of gorilla warfare, they need to get divided into smaller cells (15-20)persons and attack the supply routes, artillery batteries, airports, ammunition depots, harass small units, and never fight face to face or from fixed area, but those FSA donkeys did the opposite of all that

  • The claim for 70,000 FSA is a way over-estimate.

    At best there are a few thousand plus the usual hangers-on and Wannabes who vaporise at the first hint of battle - as does the FSA cadres when they start getting shot up.

    This infogram also fails to take into account the myriad factions and literally criminal gangs who from the start have been into violence and kidnapping on a for-profit basis

      those are 70,000 people that chose to defect from the military or civilians that chose took up arms. the 300k+ people in the syrian military didn't chose to be there and the conscript army (the majority of the force) is not very loyal, that's why they are taking forever to sweep alleppo and preferring to shell from the outside.

      First part of your comment is purely convoluted logic which should be unfit for print and the second part is only happening b/c you don't seem to understand how the first part came to be.
