    I doubt that the Butcher as interviewed by Barbara Walters was delusional. Like bin Laden, he knows that Arabs tend to follow the strong horse. Saddam would have said the same. Butcher Assad has to claim to be strong.

    I’m with Kris. The anti-Semitic left doesn’t care what sort of murderous dictator you are. What matters is that Israel must submit.

    But I don’t think GW Bush ever tried to get Israel to cede land to Syria.
