'Syrians know their Bashar''b' at MoA
"...A member of the UN independent panel investigating human rights violations in Syria, Karen Abuzayd, said what we have asserted here all along.
A majority of the people of Syria stand behind their president Bashar al Assad.
Thanks to J. Bradley for a comment that pointed to Monday's CBC Radio Show As It Happens.
Starting at 2:00 minutes into the first part of the show Karen Koning AbuZayd, a former U.S. diplomat, is interviewed about the latest UN Human Rights Council report (pdf) about the situation in Syria.
At 5:35 min into the audio with regard to a question about a possible indictment of Assad a comparison is made to Milosovic and Serbia. There Karen Abuzayd, who was involved with Bosnia, says:
"... Milosovic had a lot of his population strongly behind him, throughout, until the end, until now I would say, and the same goes for President Assad - there's quite a number of the population, maybe as many as half, if not more, who stand behind him."
