By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Syria may have been moved to the back burner since the situation in Egypt began heating up. But it doesn't mean that the situation in Syria is not simmering.
But things are still happening in Syria. Most crucial is that the rebels appear to be imploding.
Yesterday Kamal Hamami, one of the 30 leaders of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) Supreme Military Command, was killed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant, also known as al Qaeda of Iraq and Syria.
The FSA announced that they are now engaged in all out war.
This came on the heels of last week's filmed and public beheading of an FSA rebel in the city of Idlib.
It's classic. For two years I have been saying that there is no united rebel force in Syria. I've been saying that it is just a matter of time before one group of rebels kills another. Now that prediction is a full blown reality.
This rage, this warring, will be the end of the rebels. The rebels are unwittingly and unintentionally catapulting Bashar Assad back into power. And they just can't stop themselves.
