Meanwhile in Baghdad
al-Qaeda set off two car bombs, following yesterday's bombing of the Iranian embassy in Beirut. The Syrian conflict is escalating very quickly outside of Syria.
A wave of attacks, mostly by car bombs, hit mainly Shiite and commercial areas of Baghdad on Wednesday morning, killing at least 24 people and wounding 87, Iraqi officials said.Its apparent that AQI can now act in co-ordination from Beirut through Syria all the way through to Baghdad.
The bombings were part of a surge in violence that has rocked Iraq over the past months as insurgents seek to thwart the Shiite-led government's efforts to stabilize the country.

I think the rebels are pretty much starting to hurt for blood and treasure.
Its looking like a Hudna is pretty much in their best hope for the moment. I don't see them putting on big counter push. Maybe some terrorism and bombings. But a push military takeover and fall of the regime seems super unlikely.
If they can't get a Hudna its pretty much over long term. They can't get men and materials fast enough.

After they all kill each other it will work.
