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