Russia admits Assad is losing the Syria war

Even Russia is no longer pretending that Assad will remain in power. What comes next after Assad falls will not be pretty. There will be warring factions. Numerous outside countries including ours will have proxy fighters there. Syria has no economy now. It will take years for them to recover. It seems doubtful that anyone will be able to rule what used to be Syria but which now will probably splinter and thus threaten the balance of power throughout the region.
