With Russia’s assistance, dictator Bashar al-Assad may not be going anywhere.

As recent reports indicate Syria President Bashar al-Assad is preparing another round of chemical weapon attacks against dissenters as an escalation of the ongoing conflict in Syria, what does the future for the Middle Eastern dictator hold?
