Syria's Assad says his house will not fall

Another cocky bugger buggering up his country!
President Bashar al-Assad has said his government is in no danger of falling, despite months of protests. As Mandy Rice-Davies famously said, during a famous trial, concerning remarks made by a peer of the realm, "Well, he would, wouldn't he?". Assad says a lot of things like he's keen on multi-party democracy and political solutions. But reality is that he's seen as a liar and a cheat when it comes to the real changes required.

Assad keeps saying that his security forces have stopped behaving badly. Yet Youtube footage tells a different story. Pressure is mounting against him but it's too much just words and not deeds. A good outcome in Libya will show him that freedom means peace and justice. A good outcome in Libya may change the weak minds of those like the International Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell who gave on Newsnight last night the best Humpty Dumpty reasoning for not upsetting the tyrant. I have little regard for Assad. He needs a good shoving and the shoving should start PDQ!
