In an interview with RT Syrian President Bashar al-Assad denied allegations of a full fledged Syrian civil war. There could be no functioning state if this was a full fledged civil war, he argues. Whether this is accurate or not, no one can be fully sure, nor about the fate of Syria.

How many more people must die? How much longer must Syrians, and the rest of the Arab world, including Palestinians, suffer from political unrest and injustice?
