Khaddam Tells Spiegel: Assad's an Idiot

Well worth reading in full. "It's always the fools who end up causing their own downfall. The differences between Bashar and his father couldn't be greater. Hafez Assad counted on human reason, while his son counts on money, on his material benefit. He is an idiot."

***
SPIEGEL: Your accusations sound as if you were describing the conditions in Iraq under Saddam Hussein.

Khaddam: It's certainly a valid comparison. Assad himself behaves like Saddam, his family behaves like Saddam's family and Syria's security agencies act in precisely the same way as Saddam's thugs. But there is one difference: The collapse of the Syrian regime will be brought about peacefully, without an American invasion and without civil war. This is because the Syrians see their nation as a single entity. We Syrians are shocked by the situation in Iraq. We do not wish to divide our country into various ethnic groups, denominations and regions.

Iraqi Restaurants Refusing to Serve Police

Restaurant owners and workers say the presence of the peacekeepers makes their dining rooms a target for suicide bombers, Knight-Ridder newspapers reported....

Some diners explain they "do not want to dine with the Prophet Muhammad," a gallows-humor reference to being blown to heaven while eating, Knight-Ridder said.
