he's equating the lines being similar to that during the cold war.
In other news, Jaish Al-Nasr is about 3km's away from the outskirts of Hama. Despite the SAA counteroffensive, the rebels have been able to gain ground (albeit at a slower rate).
I don't think the rebels will be able to take Hama, but just the fact that they've been able to push this far really shows how stretched the SAA is in right now.
This part is speculation, but I believe they'll halt their offensive in Aleppo against ISIL in order to send more troops to Hama. My rationalization is that ISIL is already pretty beat up, while the rebels have had time to lick their wounds in the region. So naturally they'll have to deal with the stronger opponent before continuing their Aleppo offensive.
