" It wasn't me. I'm only the head of state, president,chief of the army and head honcho."
What a pathetic excuse for a human being!!!

I'llwatch this tonight, but just the short excerpt i've seen shows he's obviously non plussed about who cares or not, as well as well honed lying skills.

Too many psychopaths and sociopaths hold positions of power. Brain studies show distinctions in brains of those whose ability to have compassion and normal emotions are compromised, deficient. Even the FDA person whom Diane Sawyer interviewed last week re foster children being force fed multiple drugs showed no normal signs of human emotion...very dangerous for us to be depending upon such leaders when they clearly have no capability for caring or concern for any person's or other life form's well being!

He is really a piece of work. He would fit right in with the GOP candidates for President.

Wat'ca talk'n about? I had noth'n to do with that!
Some how, I have heard this before. The problem is that Assad is the man in charge and it would appear that he does not have credible deny-ability

His day will come then he may not be in physical condition to deny responsibility.

The problem is, Bob, that I have a lot that is useful to say, but others do not wish to see the truth.

Bob. Whether John likes it or not, the days of this pathetic despot are numbered. I watched him with Barbara Waters. What an excuse for a human being.His own military are defecting to the opposition.

more war propaganda to confuse the already brainwashed public. what about the crackdowns in china? or israel? seems of no importance when you use the moral measuring tape of corrupted mass media and the governments they work for... or do you believe anyone is telling you what is really going on? they want your money for more wars, they could care less about you.

We are only hearing so much about Syria because it suits the Zionist Imperialist agenda. They would dearly love to see a more compliant regime in Damascus to keep their ill-gotten gains in the Jolan and to exploit Syria's resources. Failing that, a more "Islamic" regime would suit them too, as then they could refuse to negotiate with "terrorists".

And in the meantime, the daily oppression of the Palestinian people goes unreported, the thefts of their remaining land, the murders, the imprisonments.

And of course, there is no "crackdown" in Syria. The legitimate government there is fighting an armed insurrection, advised and controlled by the Zionists and the CIA.

I watched that interview. The man is either in deep denial or is a brutal lying b@$+ard. Either way, he does not deserve to hold the position of "leader" in a country where he is so clearly hated.

On top of being a cruel, autocratic dictator and psychotic madman he's a liar as well. No surprise.

Diane Patrick.

You actually pray that he is lynched and murdered. Is this what you meant to say, really?

If so, you are an evil person yourself.
