    I'm on dial up so I can't view it.

    Can you give me more details? If I want a better perspective on anything going on in the ME I go right to Al Jazeera.

    Basically the translation of Syrian president to english is so horibly bad on CNN video that I have little doubt it's done PURPOSELY with intent so that people could not understand his side of the story (in other words to cover their ass, but be able to claim that they showed his side as well) - he mentions terrorists bombarding his city. and I have to wonder when I add up the facts, of how the axis of good (US/Israel/NATO) has bombarded other countries in the area, that they are in fact capable of terrorizing other nations

    Why would they even need a translator? I was certain that Assad is fluent in English and French.

    What game is this? This is truly strange.

    He is a highly educated man. I just checked wiki and my memory is correct.

    Assad attended an Arab French school in Damascus and as I remembered attended university in Britain for post graduate education.

    I don't get this at all.

    Now to your other point, I've been feeling out of sorts with this whole concept of Arab Spring and the drive to unseat individuals who were known commodities (I hate to use that phrase but it seems apropos) and have the whole area come unglued.

    Egypt is not a democracy now. It is ruled by the military.

    And Libya has dissolved into militia groups who are torturing civilians. Some traditions never die.

    Fry pan into the fire it seems.

    None of it makes any sense. And I find it truly bizarre that the western governments felt they had the right or the moral authority to tell President Mubarak or Gaddafi to step down. And I wasn't a fan of either leader.

    And now they are demanding Assad to relinquish his position. I find it outrageous frankly.

    Not that I am a fan of dictatorships. But I wonder how the Obama administration would feel if hundreds of leaders globally demanded on a daily basis that he step down.

    Or how Sarkozy would feel. Or Cameron. I don't think they'd take kindly to the demand.
