I fully confess to being a rank amateur at this sort of thing, but it seems to me that the Syrians are attacking in a rather piecemeal fashion at a variety of points without a specific and attainable objective. I get this might make sense as part of an attritional strategy, but only if you have a decisive advantage over your opponent. I'm not sure that's the case here when the rebels can blunt the Syrian edge in armor with antitank weapons and the Russians appear to lack the overwhelming and coordinated air power that might dislodge them. It seems to me that the government won't accomplish much by wearing themselves down across the map, but I'm curious to know how you think this will play out.
