He'll probably go the same way as both Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi, it seems that these dictators that play God never seem to learn that they are not immortal and die just like anybody else. I always had the impression that Bashar Al-Assad was extremely educated and intelligent, but now I realize that he is just educated and not particuarly intelligent. He's crossed the line at slaughtering his own people, a line that should never be crossed.

Most probably will die one way or the other soon (I cannot foresee even Iran, despite its surreptitious support, taking the risk of granting him asylum), but not before the causalities of the conflict breaches the 100,000 mark. I am that grim about it. Russia time and again gives nonsensical arguments whilst being caught providing arms and support on numerous occasions. I just don't see why, even if the opposition groups might have some shady elements (who knows what would end up in the aftermath), just as a matter of principal, governments around the globe are unwilling to pick a side and and stick to it in getting rid of this lunatic. In fact, whilst non-intervention and anti-war must always be the first choice, in a strange way, if the intelligence of the recent development regarding arms movement is correct, then I applaud Israel for having the courage to intervene, albeit it may (or may-not) be simply an isolated event (I'm talking about the recent airstrikes).

Did anyone see the Daily Mail article which claimed that Washington planned to launch a chemical attack on Syria and blame the Assad regime? The article had screenshots of emails from a Britam Defence guy to the Britam founder, saying that the idea was approved by Washington.

If it's true it's a war crime.

I just searched again for it and it's been removed from the website. Odd.

He should get a job on a sitcom.
He could call himself Bashar Al-Brent and it could be filmed in a documentary style about his hapless attempts at running a dictatorship with hilarious consequences.

I think it's all so horrific. Over 40,000 civilians are dead. Why is no one doing anything about it? Or are they and I'm not realising this?

The west tends to let these dictators hang themselves, whilst shouting threats from the sidelines.

When all is done and dusted, they then proceed to make a mess of things as they try to install some kind of democracy in the country. Which is useless, as most of these countries have no real concept of democracy.

I see. All I know is this has been going on for over a year and something has to change. Do the rebels have what it takes to get the president killed?

Might as well introduce his dad as a fictional director. Like father, like son. And while we are at it, Saddam Hussein as a possible antagonist ("I told you so" message). That would make for an interesting trio, of "Unity, Liberty, Socialism" as was originally proclaimed by the Ba'athist movement.
