Syria

"The former head of European diplomacy, argues that the Syrian regime is doomed to disappear"
(2011 June 18) LINK

(2011 July 12):
"In Washington, Mrs Clinton demanded that the Syrians "meet their international responsibilities immediately to protect all diplomats and the property of all countries.
She added: "President Assad is not indispensable and we have absolutely nothing invested in him remaining in power."
"Our goal is to see that the will of the Syrian people for a democratic transformation occurs."

The BBC's Kim Ghattas in Washington said her statement was cleverly worded - it might convince more Syrians to give up on Mr Assad, while not requiring any action by Washington which can continue to say it is up to the Syrian people to chose their leaders..." Link

"former head of European diplomacy"??? Are we thinking of the same one?

Reminds me of prophecy, "Damascus shall be a heap"
