Main stream media seem to be scrambling to find a narrative after Russia turns ‘Assad must go’ on it’s head

Personal View:

It will be interesting to see how the Syrian issue is spun from ‘President Assad must step down before any negotiation’ to ‘we are willing to accept a transitional period for President Assad’. None of this should come as the surprise that main stream media portrays.

It was clear from the very beginning that Iran and Russia would try their best to prevent President Assad falling. They would not just roll over if their national and strategic interest were threatened just as the US would not accept it if a similar scenario presented itself to them.

Strange that it has taken nearly five years of conflict for politicians to accept this.
