    Being an Arab dictator allied with the US is not a good position to be these days. Tunisia, Egypt, perhaps Jordan or Saudi Arabia next. If you want to rule better to be opposed to the US. That way, even if the people have no jobs, little money, or prospects and no freedom they might like you for hating America and Israel and let you stay in power. In recent years the US, Israel, and even Turkey have been trying to nudge Syria into a deal whereby they get the Golan but abandon their alliance with Iran and Hezbollah. Since self preservation is the main objective of the Syrian regime, that deal doesn't look to appealing right now. PS to ML in Houston; read carefully before you write; I wouldn't want you to knock down a straw man and make a fool of yourself like you did the other day. Hint; I didn't say all Sunni's and Christians in Lebanon oppose Hezbollah (maybe half do); I said those that do shouldn't be accused, and slandered, of being Israeli supporters because of their legitimate opposition to Hezbollah
