Syria, Assad promised elections but does not stop the repression

The system will punish the rebels. And Assad remains in place. Western pressure then they "are worthless", "their threats," just words, however, and any military action against Syria "will have implications far wider than they could bear." So the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, has responded to requests for resignations tonight came in recent days by the U.S. and some European countries. Immediately after the televised interview, in which Assad has also promised reforms in the short and legislative elections by March 2012, thousands of Syrians poured into the streets to demand the fall of the regime in almost all of the epicenters of the revolt , causing the reaction of agents that - according to activists - they would open fire on protesters.

The sources point out that parades were held in the suburbs of Damascus in the Midan district in the heart of the capital, in some suburbs of Aleppo in the north, east Albukamal and Dayr az Zor, Homs and Hama in the center, in Idlib north-west, Daraa in the south. In eleven years in power al-Assad had never given an interview to Syrian state TV, but decided to do it tonight, two months after his last speech to the nation and five months into the popular anti-regime demonstrations and subsequent repression, according to activists, has caused the deaths of over 2,000 civilians.

Victims that the system does not recognize, that the Rais did not mention that the two interviewers and the state television does not have remembered. "The situation in Syria is improving," he assured Assad that "the solution is and will be political," but stressing that "security should be maintained, because the protests have turned into armed action."
