WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND
I see that Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad spoke of resistance to the American occupation in Iraq. The dictator opined, "Certainly, what has happened on the popular level gives legitimacy to the resistance and shows that the major part of what is happening is resistance."

I wonder if he thinks the possible terrorist attack, possible mutiny, possible uprising (no one seems quite sure) that hit part of Damascus yesterday constituted legitimate resistance the repressive, decades-long Baathist regime in Syria.
