Look at this man. You'd think he was the president of a thriving democracy and that he was busy on the campaign trail. Who is he kidding? Does he think the entire world is stupid? Whilst this photo was being taken, sixty Syrians were killed in Homs by his militias. In the video below he says that his regime will succeed on the ground and "in space", wonderful...

Maysaloon I was wondering what is your opinion about what will happen? Do you think the regime is slowly losing its grip on people? Some of my friends are happy after yesterday's draft constitution vote and are spouting propaganda such as "syria won".

I think the country is heading slowly towards a civil war. I think slowly but surely the regime is losing, if it has not already lost, public opinion. Only the die hard Assad loyalists will still support him from here. As for the constitution, I don't see how this could be allowed to continue when over half the population has not voted or voted against the document. It is storing immense problems for later and it is naive to think that Assad's supporters have "won" anything.

I hope you're right. By watching syria tv, I was beginning to think that this draft constitution had fooled enough people, and I was starting to think that it looks like the revolution will fail.

Why do you think people still havent started to protest by millions? Do you think it will happen?

Me thinks the President has lost his grip on reality for some time now. Why do remember The Emperor Jones where "Brutus Jones , hunted by natives in revolt, flees through the jungle and slowly disintegrates psychologically, becoming a shrieking hysteric who runs right into the path of his pursuers"?
