There is one thing certain about conditions in Syria–President Bashar Assad will continue being an Assad as was his father. Latest reports are that 35 Syrians were murdered by forces of the government. They made the mistake of going to Friday prayers at their local mosque in Hama and Homs. They realized security forces had surrounded all buildings in which people engaged in prayer because public prayer is against the law in modern Syria. Assad only fears the power of prayer because it is conducted in a group setting.
Turkey is furious at Assad. Nabil Al Arabi, head of the Arab League is angry at Assad, most Syrians are mad at Assad, but he just can’t shake off his legacy of death and destruction to opponents. In the end, Bashar will meet the same result as did Saddam and Gaddafi–someone will shove something up his ass.
