No probs. All I am saying is that he tried to avoid living in Syria and being a part of his father’s regime. Once Pappa (Haffez) died, the old guard Junta demanded that he return. Like a good Mafia Don son, he did and look where he is now.
Due to his Western education and exposure, fools like Obama and Clinton (Hilliary) hailed him as the Great Reformer. Look at him now.
You could say that about Mr. Obama, if you think about it.
Actually, his older brother was in line to take over, but died in a car accident about 5 or 6 yrs before Haffez died. Bashir was groomed by his father for the job. He learned everything dad taught him.
