I have to admire the way Assad negotiates — the moment peaceful protests started, he turned live fire on the crowds, which poured gasoline on the whole smoldering hellhole of a country.

It’s not a negotiation, he made sure of that. And it can only end one way. He will leave office, whether he goes under his own power is the only decision he can make at this point. Thanks to Assad, jihadists are going to take over by force, and won’t easily let go.

Assad plays the same card always: “Do you really want to reap the results of a failed state in Syria?”

If we think Libya was a mess, Syria will start a holocaust.

The Arab Spring is becoming a winter nightmare.

You have to take everything you read about there with a grain of salt. Remember the media breathlessly reporting daily that Assad was ready to use chemical weapons on his own people? Obama was ready to act- to step in and help the muslim Brotherhood . . er, rebels. Then Russia stepped in and said that they would guard the chemical weapons, pulling the rug out from under The One. I don't like Assad but so much of this has been a setup and a pack of lies. They just want to expand the Caliphate.
