The Lion Cub in Winter!

Our President still can’t make up his mind as to how he wants the world to see him. He tries his best to come off looking smart and reasonable, only to look foolish and dumb. He bends over backwards to get a deal with the US, only to get none. What’s a dumb petty dictator to do in this world to get the powers-that-be to buy into his most obvious and ludicrous lies? Oh why, oh why, oh why, has life changed so much from the time when his father was still alive, at least in theory, and when the world seemed so willing to buy any shit that the regime had to peddle?


I think the lion cub will never know. He may not live long enough for that.

  1. How would the lion-cub respond to the UN request for an interview in the Harriri probe? He is ,after all, the one that promised the UN free access to all potential Syrian witnesses.Do you think that 1559 is the begining of a new kind of activism by the UN? I trust that it was the first UNSC resolution under chapter VII to give the international community the right to become a major player in the internal affairs of a member country?This last development cannot but weaken further the grip of the Syrian Ba’ath.

  2. Indeed Ghassan, I think 1559 was the real beginning of this crisis, and I believe is still gives the UN Security Council a broad mandate to help reshape the Lebanese internal scene, and by implications, the Syrian internal scene as well. This regime is cornered on all side. Bashar will not cooperate with the UN Team. A new showdown is looming, but Bashar and the regime are in afar weaker position now.
