This political senility and this deception by the Syrian security apparatus is a laughable farce and at the same time it seems they will use all means, even security, to shake up security (in Lebanon) to try to confuse the inquiry.
We will not rest until we see the suspects behind bars.
This [language and criticism] is unbecoming of the president of Syria.
This is a new terrorism message.
This time this regime should change. This guy in Damascus (Assad) is sick. If he stays, we won't have stability in the Middle East.
I was cynical about Iraq. But when I saw the Iraqi people voting . . . it was the start of a new Arab world... The Berlin Wall has fallen.
The Syrian regime is helping the insurgency in Iraq and allowing all kinds of militants to come in and out, and go to Iraq to attack random soldiers and innocent people.
Nowadays it has become more risky. They have listening devices stronger than the Lebanese Army. They have infiltrated everything.
We move sometimes. We send messages to each other. We talk on the phone. Tell me, what can we do?
We are facing someone who has an army, money, and a political plan for the Arab Islamic Middle East.
Don't forget we are in a state of war and no peace. But it's very dynamic and challenging compared to the rest of the Arab world.
If I have any advice to give to the Syrian president it is to cooperate for the sake of the investigation or for the sake of uncovering the truth.
I condemn what happened in Madrid, but it is suspicious. If tomorrow there will be another bombing, in France for example, who will gain power? Of course not Jacques Chirac, but Le Pen.
Lebanon will be engulfed again in a huge power game that will last quite a long time. This is the tragic destiny of Lebanon.
I know something quite sure. We'll never have peace with this Syrian regime. They'll never give us relief, and we'll never forget that.
