Bashar al-Assad: Not so bad after all?

Full story: MacLeans

No one in Western capitals will say so out loud, but it appears the same governments that once insisted Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad must leave office are now beginning to think it might be better if he stuck around.

Just posturing. The West fears AlQaeda way more than they fear Assad.

But George knows that it won’t happen in Canada, because Canada is the part of Imperial Club, which tells other countries when, and which leader has to go.

exactly! Assad is just the guy giving the orders to kill, the SAA obeys anyone giving the orders so replace the guy giving these demonic orders with a more moderate person that is willing to work with ALL Syrians and problem solved, at least for Syrians, then Rebels and SAA combine efforts to drive al Qaeda (Happy now) home.

You are such an idiot along with Syriana and mxlplix, of course it is the Syrians that decide who is the president, shake your head, do you really think that Assad checks in on Topix to see what you recommend. Has Assad ever called you three to get your advise, this is a conversation forum nothing more, you guys are such idiots, when someone makes an opposing comment you gotta make it personal and insult the writers country, mother and whatever else, GROW UP

Russia and the US are trying to help by mediating the conflict or is that to hard for you to understand? Do you really think Russia has no opinion or Iran, they are going to work with both sides until a compromise works and both sides put down the weapons. If that means Assad stays and the Rebels are ok with it then we have to all be ok with it, it is their country as well as Assad.
