    The principles of the Alawite Regime in Syria:

    No Principle (when the situation requires)
    Create the fire then sell the water
    Defeat is victory
    Always negotiate on the verge of the abyss
    There are no 'burned' cards
    The regime never fights, others fight for it
    Survival is revival

  2. And of course, with people with no foreing policy experience like Sarkozy, it works... I am really glad I never voted for him.
