Assad gave another speech today but honestly nothing he has said since 30th March 2011 has been of any relevance. At that point he chose the military solution – as seen today in Homs and Houla, Kafar Zita and Morek in Hama, Ariha in Idlib, Duma, and the northern suburbs of Aleppo. We think Dr. Bashar is confused about the difference between surgery and butchery. Meanwhile Hama marked 1 year since the massacre of more than 60 protesters on the Friday of Free Children.
