The end game

August 21st, 2011 · 2 Comments · Politics

FW: Magazine, which has good contacts in the Syrian government, claims that Bashar Al-Assad is planning to call “free and fair” presidential elections in 2014.

If true, this would be a massive shift in the dynamic of the uprising. When Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali of Tunisia, and when Hosni Mubarak of Egypt made similar announcements, it hastened their downfall. It was, essentially, a deferred resignation.

Bashar is due to speak to the nation today. Ahead of his previous speeches, FW: Magazine’s leaks have usually been fairly accurate.

    The day when this viscous murder will be put on trial is soon. My deep congratulations to the mighty rebels in Libya. Bashar Al Assad, your days are numbered and justice will prevail IF GOD WILLS!

    We will never forget our martyrs!

    I guess your insiders are full of s*&t after all. How gullible you seem to be to believe such a lie, but i think its your wishful thinking you share with Iran and turkey.
