“…[[[Strongmen aren’t necessarily very strong; nor are they all unreasonable. A tyrant wants power most of all, but he may also want fame and fortune. There are tyrants who want to do well for their tribes or for humanity, according to their own lights, twisted as the latter may be — the 20th century was full of them. There are well-balanced tyrants who are experts on the tightrope, or tyrants with enough common sense to come in out of the rain. Many want the good life, with its comforts and kudos. Not all tyrants are fanatical. There are some who prefer to live to fight another day. But different as dictators are, all prefer hopeless resistance to hopeless surrender.]]]…”
…Jonas of the bible and the big “whale”…? the bible of old and new, love prophecies of destruction, really come true! and now of course the prophecy of the 2nd and 3rd visit of jesus to earth wont be!
…Eeek, I thought the second last for now Arab dictatorship, was not going to end as Libya or Iran, etc.!
…Having the influence of a English educated wife, that was offered to go home free back to England…!
…Well it seems that the noose or other few results are well headed to a sad finale…!
…This guy Assad preferred power to loosing it and finding a good life some where else, unless when he could have it was already too late anyway…!
IT REALLY IS SAD, AS TO WHAT Dictators and Tyrants do to keep power!
The secret is not always that when you are not wrong as Government, some Evil would not try to get power…!
