    Assad you cannot kill yourself out of a popular uprising.

      Madhi - 2012-09-15 19:26

      Elections alone can test popularity and without them even u cannot say who is popular.

      Absolutely Mahdi so why doesn't Assad allow or want free and fair elections?

    ""The real problem in Syria is that of combining politics with the work being done on the ground," said Assad"" Yes, while you play politics, your terrorists army is 'doing the work on the ground''; Killing your opposition, by the tens of thousands !!! BASTARD!!

      Vulgar again and no sense made, just verbal diarrhoea.

    "The real problem in Syria is that of combining politics with the work being done on the ground," said Assad. In Assad's world, "politics" means killing Syrians who want to vote.

      fred.fraser.12 - 2012-09-15 16:47

      "The work being done on the ground" also means killing Syrians who want to vote.

      Madhi - 2012-09-15 19:29

      U need psychotic medication.

      fred.fraser.12 - 2012-09-15 19:34

      You're not making sense Madhi.

      kevin.watson.7906 - 2012-09-15 20:00

      Fred, Mahdi has all the instincts of a dictator. The only view point is his, the only right way is his, this is what radical Islam is about. That it is stupid and will lead ultimately to the destruction of society in the islamist theocracies is beyond his understanding. It is why radical Islam continues to live not by Allah's rules but by the rules of 14th century absolute hereditary chieftainships. If all he can say is that from your observations you are psychotic he is in serious need of a dictionary, an education and a widening of his viewpoint by reading.

      . Madhi, is way past his 'sell by' date!!!

      Madhi - 2012-09-16 11:29

      So far only Assad is waiting at the negotiation table, others want to destroy the country and as a president, he has a constitutional duty to fight fire with fire. He has said several times mistakes were made at the begining by his forces in dealing with peace demonstrations, now he wanted syrians to decide their leaders through elections which he has a right to contest like any other syrian. But AA,FF, Gerhard and now kevin.watson want bloodshed to take terrorists to power instead of the ballot box. No normal person would enjoy killing as u guys enjoy, u must be psychopaths, no other reasonable explanation.

      fred.fraser.12 - 2012-09-15 22:58

      Another African who likes unelected dictators who butcher their citizens just because they want to vote. Why?

      AnthonyfromAfrica - 2012-09-16 03:49
