Syria’s Assad to seek third term , says FM

Share:

Assad out of touch cartoon 3Embattled Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who is facing a two-year rebellion aimed at unseating him , will run for a third term in 2014, his foreign minister Walid Muallem said on Wednesday, despite the fact that over 94,000 Syrian people have been killed in the brutal crackdown against the revolt.

“Will President Assad run for a third term or won’t he, that will depend on conditions in 2014 and the will of the people,” Muallem told the Beirut-based Arab news channel Mayadeen, which is close to Syria and its ally Iran.

“If the people want him, he will present himself, and, if they don’t, he won’t. Mr Assad is in constant touch with his people,” Muallem said.

“The Americans have no say on who governs Syria,” he added.

Western and Arab governments are demanding that Assad step down as part of efforts to end the deadly conflict in Syria .

Assad has ruled Syria since 2000, when he took over on the death of his father Hafez.

He was elected in 2000 and again in 2007, virtually unopposed.

    Should be read as “Assad to seek third term in a coffin”.

      It must burn you know that most in Syria still support Assad even though the ones you follow have thrown everything at him, his government and his army. 2 years later and they are still hand in hand. I think the only one living in a Delusion is you Beiruti. Only time will tell and I look forward to having a debate with you once he is voted back in by the people. Of course, most who are ignorant like you will scream out corruption.

        Hmm reminds me of those elections Hafez Assad and Saddam Hussein used to have, funny how they always used to win those elections by 98% or something (no corruption detected at all). Hmmm ignorant like me? As long as we have ‘Lebanese’ like you staunchly supporting Assad we will always be a backwards society and lack development.

        Hmmm most of the country supports Assad? That’s why he needed to call in Hezbollah, Iraq, Iran, Russia and China… right? Go back to selling Chiclets on the street you peasant, i wonder which apartment you stole the computer from to type your backwards views, more importantly i wonder who taught you how to read and write. As long as there are disgusting Lebanese like you who support the Assad family, what they do to Syrians, what they’ve done to our nation, we will be backwards. I actually live in disgust that i’ve come from the same nation as a person like you.

          Funny you say that, after reading your twisted posts I kind of feel the same way about you. And yes Beiruti, most of the country support him. Now I know your a bit slow, however use that one brain cell you have and think back to when this bullshit revolution first started. Remember the million that hit the streets in show of support for Assad which btw happened on more than one occasion. Or are you going to say that they where forced to demonstrate. If the people were really against him, then he would have fallen a long time ago. The problem is ignorant people like you have got their head so far up their ass and keep living in the past. Get the F@@k over what Syria did. I keep hearing the same old crap, Syria did this and Syria did that. I’m starting to think that maybe you were raped by a Syrian. If so, seek some help then move on. And Beiruti, you don’t come from the same nation I come from. The nation I come from has taught me to forgive and forget, to not live in past, and to always remember that you are not better than any other person. EVEN IF THEY ARE A PEASANT OR SELL CHICLETS.

            When you add all the mercenaries, Alawites, Mukhabarats, Sunni loyalists you get 1 million people, keep in mind the nation has 20 million people. I won’t forgive anyone who killed thousands of my people, occupied us for 30 years, and considered us lower than them. You are not Lebanese, no Lebanese would ever say what you just said, you are making a fool out of yourself so just stop.

            1 million, lol. If I recall correctly it was in the MILLIONS. Again typical of someone like you only choosing to see what suits them. Look it up on YouTube dopey. You will clearly see that it was well over a million. As for me being Lebanese, I am more Lebanese than you will ever be. You see a real Lebanese doesn’t have hate in him like you do. A real Lebanese is educated by his or hers parents to learn to say water under the bridge. You my friend are no better than those extremist, FULL OF HATE. THIS WILL CONSUME YOU.
