His official portrait still refers to Bashar al-Assad as "The Hope" of the Syrian nation, but signs are increasing that the man who presides over Syria's embattled government has little of it left for himself.

Sure, it's much better for the people of Syria to live in fear and dread, to live each day not knowing if that day will be their last day. The people of Syria took on this tyrant, and yes the US and our allies did assist. You prefer that al Assad not be challenged by his own people?

Assad is a tyrant and deserves whatever he gets at the hands of the people he has tortured and made suffer for so long.

We could end this by loaning the services of a Predator!

Does anybody here thinks that Islamists fighting to replace him will be any better to Syrians, especially, for Syrian minorities?

And, if NO, why cheer up downfall of this secular dictator? I am not a fan of Iran and Assad, but better him, than another Morsi.

I am in agreement with you Bob Algernon, the extremist Islamists determined to replace the secular leader will resort to feudalism if they succeed ;and women's rights which are basic human rights including the right to self determination and education, and freedom from genital mutilation will be eliminated. The Christian sects will be less than tolerated and will live under the constant threat of death. An extremist Islamic state is definitely on the agenda and is a step back to the dark ages and tribalism.Be mindful the Qu'ran is both their religious text and their law and it does include some extremely ominous doctrine. For your enlightenment please go to the You Tube video The Darker Side of Muhammad- or go to www.myspear.org.

Thank you Kira, I am glad that I am not the only one on this thread who linked recent radical Islamization seen in several Arab countries and can expand the trend to see where things are going.

I don't know who invented the term "Arab Spring" and what exactly did they mean, but the actual radicalization of several countries is a terrible development for the progressive humanity.
