My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


"I Am Not Saddam"

President Bashar Assad has reassured the U.N. that he intends to comply with their call to get out of Lebanon. In fact, his full statement to Time magazine (no link available yet) goes something like "I am not Saddam Hussein."

So, between elections in Afghanistan and Iraq, a startling turnaround in Palestine, Libya giving up its arms program, Egypt making at least a headfake towards elections, and now Syria giving up its feifdom with a nod towards President Bush's Iraq policy, it would seem this has already been a successful transformational Presidency.

And it's still three and a half years to go.
