According to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Syria’s President Bashar Al-Assad has lost legitimacy and “is not indispensable”. Clinton’s angry remarks came after French and US American Embassies in Damascus had been attacked by loyal to the regime thugs yesterday. Well, as a dictator, who is right now brutally cracking down protests in his country, he apparently never had any legitimacy.
But, legitimacy doesn’t come with American investments for keeping Presidents such as Mubarak, Bin Ali, Saleh, and Kings like Al Khalifa and Abdullah, even Col. Qaddafi in power. Such talk is revealing and disgraceful. It’s a shame.
