In line with the Arab Spring mode, the United States is preparing to make Syria's President Bashar Al-Assad the next leader to be ousted. This came out after the UN Resolutions have been vetoed by Russia and China due to economic and political interest of the two giant countries.
However, the US is becoming restless and impatient because of the continuous massacre of civilians and protesters in Syria and the apparent snubbing of President Al-Assad on Arab League's observers. The US Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, in despair and impatience, remarked that the Syrian President's "days are numbered!". Consequently, the Pentagon and the US Central Command are already doing some initial preparations just in case President Barack Obama make the go signal.
Personally, I do believe that President Bashar Al-Assad's life and power are really numbered. I think that he will the same fate of President Saddam Hussein of Iraq and President Muammar Qaddafi of Libya. He is killing civilians and his people just to remain in power. I guess he already knew his fate. He is just clinging on it.
