#3 Rebel-held areas are reported to be running short of food. If true, they are in trouble. In fact, it's pretty surprising they're having these issues, given that a substantial chunk are said to be drawn from Army defectors. On the other hand, it's been a while since they've gone to war. Of course, they could resort to the other white meat, if they're not squeamish.
