Fox News terrorism expert Wally Ferris who joins us now on the telephone some analysis of all of this we'll talk about Egypt -- a moment -- but let's start.
With Syria and all this talk about chemical weapons are we had as some describe it here in recent days a quote tipping point.
It had always been a tipping point when the rebels would get very close to Damascus.
This is why if the regime of -- is trying to do all the deterrent measures now he is weaponized in those chemicals.
But it is less lucky going to be using them in an offensive manner if -- count if there's.
Capital and his Presidential Palace are surrounded about to go down.
There is doing it -- visit risk that he -- you'd been limited fashion but if he does then the United States and Russia and the Security Council may take action.
All right so that's the thing here is because everybody looks at -- from the United States' point of view well everybody here doesn't waste and the start to say themselves.
Well are we gonna get involved and another war in the Middle East are we is this a replay of what we saw in Iraq when we were told that there were.
You know quote quote weapons of mass destruction and went in there weren't in all this kind of thinks -- people start replaying that in their mind.
When it comes to Syria.
Should they -- No because in Syria would have major difference -- in Iraq there was no.
Civil war we just invaded Iraq had to look for these weapons of mass destruction and we brought down -- regime because not at all on the agenda of the administration or even.
Congress second this -- regime has serious.
Regional -- there's.
In Iran -- -- some in Iraq and with Hezbollah and Lebanon.
And ask couple good friend on the Security Council that will be Russia and China that place devastation rushing.
To sit down with the Russians.
And they say to try to find the solution position.
OK so how does it and what's your best guess.
-- I don't yet and unfortunately had before one of the -- gonna win on the ground -- he is satisfied with the way.
Without the opposition securing at least one or two cities.
They're not that Saddam with the regime and the regime and I'm gonna simply capitulate and these.
So what we're seeing right now -- either of the Security Council to accept that the Russian Chinese and Americans will send a force on the ground unlikely.
More than but the level to get a secure is the only hysteria that -- got you don't in Libya.
And then -- the possibility of document at least way and a lot.
OK so that it more than one more than likely when a drag on here doesn't it is so all these.
Not reports -- these indications in recent days admit you were coming to ahead here at something big might be about to happen that turns it one way or -- you're seeing now it's gonna drag on for a little while.
It is gonna drag gonna unless there's a -- -- he nation and -- -- doll and a sort of there's basically -- it that long civil war.
Let me ask you about and shift gears a little bit -- To Egypt we were talking a moment ago about this up power grab from the president.
How Mohamed Moore C and then rushing through.
-- that constitution and it's been.
A mess there in the streets with the protesters out and the violence that's ensued afterwards.
-- what do we do in this situation we being the United States looking in on what's happening in Egypt.
I don't have very good deals because -- forced Syria we are late we -- two years late even they need to be kept.
When this first wave of the Arabs being -- that -- square accrual remember.
These weather -- women middle class civil society that's why the international community have expected to bring down mr.
-- doing source of the revolution.
Then the Muslim Brotherhood moved and and unfortunately the administration partner -- open these.
That the Muslim Brotherhood are going to be a good partner mr.
Morse said his organization.
Took advantage -- the bottom and -- -- the presidency.
Make major changes in and the unfortunate and now they've got back the judicial branch of the good life.
Seven we're fighting the original terrorist link it back ministries at -- and -- So this Guidant Mohamed -- -- the president of Egypt.
Will he be able to hang on there and and even established -- strong control that country over the long term because obviously if you again to go back to the pictures that we're looking at a moment ago he has his own issues and in their people in his own country that are.
Not happy at all with them so what does he do just internally.
Well the country's divided until at least you have millions that employment -- But -- millions blah -- demonstrating on the streets of Cairo and other cities.
What was -- right now it mr.
-- not willing to make a concession.
For the opposition happened to do what not to run this referendum right now because the draft of the constitution for the vote yes or no.
Has not saying you know worked on by the opposition responded by it is -- -- -- -- -- Islamic competition would referendum were more likely he would win because he controls the widow for a minute gonna go.
And that is not get -- -- by the opposition -- the opposition the -- it very strong very young but not true that the Muslim Brotherhood.
Are they young and the others -- -- -- as part of the other way around.
