Bashar al-Assad: 'The West won't come after me'

The English-language propaganda television station Russia Today interviews embattled Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. It's clear from this interview that Assad understands the implications of Tuesday's election in the United States. Assad says that the West will not intervene in Syria, and he's right. There is no chance that Hussein Obama will go to war to depose Assad - regardless of how many people he slaughters - and there is no chance that the West will go after Assad without the United States.

Let's go to the videotape.

There's a full transcript here.

He's quite right on this point. First off, the polite do-nothing west has entirely convinced itself that Assad will magically leave on his own and be defeated. This is utter nonsense. There is not and never has been the slightest evidence that either he would cut and run or, importantly would actually lose this fight. Secondly, the west wants nothing more than to say they're all in favor of trials and ICC indictments without having to carry any of that out. Despots get exiled to the South of France, or, in Assad's case, Kensington or some equally posh London neighborhood. But the point is, he's right. The west won't intervene because after several years real world experience, it's finally learned that helping fanatical terrorists overthrow their local tyrant doesn't turn their country into into a hot sunny version San Francisco replete with gay marriages, free weed, social welfare benefits and green energy.
