Talk about looking for trouble in the wrong direction:
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said he thought Washington might eventually resort to military action against his country.
“Washington has imposed sanctions on us and isolated us in the past, but each time the circle hasn’t closed around us,” Assad told Italy’s Repubblica newspaper.
“If, however, you ask me if I’m expecting an armed attack, well I’ve seen it coming since the end of the war in Iraq.”
Don’t worry about Washington, Baby Assad. Worry about Beirut — and maybe Damascus.
