The Syrian regime wants to stay in power at any cost while there was certainly a civil popular opposition in Syria when the uprising first began.

“Good Luck, Mr. Jonathan. It’s Time To Impeach You” – American Professor

By Joel Brinkley, the Hearst professional in residence at Stanford University and a Pulitzer Prize-winning former correspondent for The New York Times
