AFP: Syria’s Assad expects to run again, rejects power deal.

By now such statements come as nothing more than a show of petulant defiance by a toy-boy holed up in a bunker somewhere watching the end of a dynasty project that should never have been launched. Whether he pays for his and his father’s crimes now, or ten years from now, who really cares? Nothing can ever change the fact of how petty, malevolent and spiteful the Assads’ venture into the world has been. This terse footnote to a dark and convoluted history ends now.
