The U.S. and other Western countries have often said that President Assad's days are numbered, but it's been two years since the uprising in Syria began and the country's regime is intent on hanging on to power.
FOX News Radio's Emily Wither reports:
It's an anniversary that won't be celebrated. It'll be marked by violence.
Syrians living in the crumbling towns and cities destroyed by fighting, or living in the difficult conditions of the many refugee camps dotted along the border, will be asking when will this end?
The answer is, no one knows. The Syrian government remains defiant, still receiving weapons and support from Iran. Syria's rebels remain determined.
Many describe the situation on the ground as a bloody stalemate. Syria is tearing itself apart, the country's international envoy warns it could become a failed state.
