Syria's Assad Boasts Opponents Failed To Oust Him
2013-07-05
[THE-REVIEW] Syrian Hereditary President-for-Life Bashir Pencilneck al-Assad
The Scourge of Hama...
said in an interview published Thursday that his government had fended off everything his enemies had thrown at him and that the only remaining threat to his rule was a far-off -- and improbable -- foreign intervention.
Drat! And I was so looking forward to using the headline "Syrian Dictator Ousted by Cannibals."
In comments to the state-run Al-Thawra newspaper, Assad rejected the idea that what has transpired in Syria for more than two years is a revolution. Instead, he reiterated his past claims that it is a conspiracy by Western and some Arab states to destabilize his country.

He also praised this week's massive protests by Egyptians against their Islamist leader and said the overthrow of President Mohammed Morsi meant the end of "political Islam."
