Bashar al-Assad is doomed

Forget the consensus that Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad, has managed to hold on to power for the forseeable. I've been tipped off by a trustworthy official source that he's definitely on the way out:
Hello Friend,
I am Tim Ruler a personal foreign consultant to the Bashar al-Assad President of Syria.
President Bashar al-Assad knowing full well that his regime is coming to an end due to the political civil revolution  that is engulfing Syria,Please Kindly view the attachment for more details...
Obviously, as 'personal foreign consultant' to a shortly-to-be-deposed dictator, Tim needs to take some extra special precautions, like sending a mail that ostensibly comes from "" (although the header suggests that it originated in Azerbaijan), entrusting the safety of large amounts of money belonging to his famously murderous and unforgiving soon-to-be-ex boss to random strangers and going by the alias "Arnold Lizard." Given his precarious position, who can blame him?

Now what's in that attachment? Oops! I just accidentally deleted Tim's e-mail...
