Nasrallah knows the collapse of Syrian regime is coming

I keep on thinking about this speech by Nasrallah right after the fall of Saddam’s Iraq in 2003… It means he understands what is at work – the idea was for the outside powers NOT to push the logic forward because Hizbullah will be forced to react and, even if they did not, Nasrallah knows full well that the assad regime can pull EVERYONE into a massive war. From his speech:

The lesson from the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, Nasrallah had said in an earlier address, was that “the army and security services can protect any oppressive regime, but that the army and security services of any oppressive regime will not be able to protect it if confronted by a stronger military force. What can really protect a regime are its own people and its own citizens, if they are well treated by it; if it oppresses them, none of its rallying speeches will do it any good.”
