If you missed the President's address to the nation, please watch. It's a must see.

Dee, thanks for the link - I missed the original broadcast. Monday night I happened to be at a dinner party with a Syrian physician (now an American citizen practicing in the US). . . we asked him about the situation in Syria. Turns out he attended medical school in Damascus University with Assad. He described Assad the medical student as "a nice guy", "kind", and "humble". So how could he gas his people?, we asked. "Power corrupts" was his response. Assad's father was known for his brutality and, incredibly, Assad is even more brutal. This physician believes Assad's brutality will only increase as long as he is in power.
