Syria is an intransigent enigma. I don't know how else to describe that country. At least under Hafez Assad, there was SOME predictability to the regime. Under the chinless wonder, a/k/a Basher Assad, it has become as inscrutable as North Korea: http://www.meforum.org/article/1819. The only things of which I or anyone else should be sure is that it presents a danger to us (through its alliance with Iran and funnelling of arms and terrorists into Iraq) and to Israel (through its domination of Lebanon and support of Hezbollah, Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist groups).
