Assad Says He'll Talk Peace With Israel Once Bush Is Gone

In an interview with a newspaper in Qatar, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said he would be prepared to talk peace with Israel once President Bush leaves office next year. Translation: Assad thinks a Democrat will win the White House and consequently will place more pressure on Israel and less on Syria. Of course, Assad might come to rue his statement should John McCain be elected in November. Careful for what you wish.
