With the Syrian skies secured by the Russian air force, which even with the coordination with Israel guarantees security, and a highly fortified presidential palace that's protected by Iranian special forces and their allies, Bashar Assad, whose motorcade traveled to parliament along a route secured by multiple forces, has the audacity to address MPs like a peacock let loose and living in a virtual world.Emboldened with victories and territorial progress thanks to Russian and Iranian support, one would have thought that such advances would prompt the regime to facilitate the implementation of U.N. resolutions and efforts to reach a peaceful solution to the conflict.
