No longer a lion cub, ours is now the real grown thing. The Baath Congress, we are told, has gone just as planned, as far as he is concerned, and he has just appointed members of his team to all key positions in the country’s military and security institutions – with General Dashing playing quite the important role I have to say, but then he always had.
This was quite a daring act of striptease indeed, complete frontal nudity and all that. The last fig leaf has just been removed. If reforms should not take place soon, everybody will know to whom they should assign the blame.
Jolly good show Cubbie! You make us all oh so proud.
