My predictions for 2013
Last year I didn’t make any detailed predictions for the year (though I did for the decade). For 2013 I will. (1) Bashar al-Assad will no longer be president of Syria by the end of the year The best-case scenario (from his point of view) is to be in exile with a few million dollars and a guarantee he won’t be prosecuted. While he deserves to be prosecuted, this option would save a lot of suffering
