Assad running away after all?

A rumor or real news?

Syrian President Bashar Assad has accepted that he will have to leave power, but will only leave in an orderly way, Russia's ambassador to France said on French radio on Friday.

"At the Geneva conference, there was a final communiqué that foresees a transition towards a more democratic system," Alexandre Orlov told RFI radio. (Reuters)
An orderly transition? After killing fifteen thousand of own people? He is not asking much, does he?

As for his successors: well, there are more questions than answers, that for sure.

But how can they go without Asma's fondue set? The sad thing is that we couldn't refuse her if she came to the UK but her husband should be as welcome as a wave of clap cases in a convent.

I think that in the middle of a nice floral arrangement he would look as cool as the next stiff.

If you want a nice floral arrangement for a corpse, contact one of my fellow Italian-Americans who runs a flower shop. He will probably have plenty of experience in this field.
(Cue various funeral scenes from the Godfather movies!)

OK, thanks for the tip ;-)
