FORMER SYRIAN VP NOW OPENLY CALLS FOR REVOLT - TO AN ARABIC NEWSPAPER

BBC:
Former Syrian Vice-President Abdul Halim Khaddam wants to oust President Bashar al-Assad through a popular uprising, he told an Arabic newspaper. Mr Khaddam told the Pan-Arab al-Sharq al-Awsat that the pressure for change had to come from within Syria. On Thursday, he said Mr Assad should go to prison for complicity in the murder of former Lebanese PM Rafik Hariri. "This regime cannot be reformed, so there is nothing left but to oust it," he said. "The Syrian people will be the ones to oust it."

Reliapundit,
I hope it works out that way. Surely, we don't want to go to war with another country.

I've got a question, slightly off-topic. People keep saying we should take Iran to the UN Security Council to have sanctions implemented because of their lack of cooperation on the nuclear issue.

Have sanctions ever worked against a dictatorship?

it's about getting the ducks in a row.

IOW: setting the table for the preemptive strike.
