Writing in The Washington Post, Reporter Marc Fisher gives us a different view of Syria's President Bashar al-Assad:
In Assad’s mind, his presence and control are the only protection from mass killings for his Alawite clan — a Shiite sect that makes up about 12 percent of Syria’s population.And, who would intervene to protect the Alawites? Perhaps Iran, but then how would the rest of us react?
Hat tip to the The Daily Caller.
