Syrian President Al-Assad seems to be losing his hold on Syria

I think we have the best news in Months coming out of Syria today. It's being reported by Turkish media that 33 Syrian Soldiers have defected into Turkey in the last day. Included in the 33 were a General and two Colonels. If Al-Assad loses his military he will have less power to assert control over the citizens of Syria. He will still has strength threw his connections with Iran but it's a big show of symbolism if his legitimate army is defecting. Hopefully this is the beginning of the end of his regime but what will fill the vacuum of power next ? Just as we have seen in Egypt and Libya it's never just as easy as getting rid of the bad guy. The leader who comes in next could be worse.
