On this edition of Peter Lavelle’s CrossTalk: Is the revolutionary hype in the Arab world losing heart? Have Egyptians fulfilled their revolutionary aspirations, or will they find themselves powerless in the face of a new regime? And when will this new regime take over the current stalemate? Do the hundreds of citizens fleeing Tunisia are happy with what many label as revolutions?

Fin de Régime in Syria?
The many benefits, and few dangers, of the Assad regime’s prospective fall
Daniel Pipes – May 24, 2011
The revolt in Syria offers great opportunities, humanitarian and geo-political. Western states should quickly and robustly seize the moment to dispatch strongman Bashar al-Assad and his accomplices. Many benefits will follow when they reach their appointed dustbin of history.
Foreign: The malign but tactically brilliant Hafez al-Assad blighted the Middle East with disproportionate Syrian influence for decades. His son, the feckless Bashar, has continued this pattern since 2000 by sending terrorists to Iraq; murdering Lebanese prime minister Rafiq al-Hariri and overthrowing his son, Saad; aiding the Hezbollah and Hamas terror groups; and developing chemical and nuclear weapons. His riddance will be a universal boon.

Several points were too bulky to fit into the main body of my column today, “Fin de Régime in Syria?” so I include them here:
(1) My title intentionally echoes one in Foreign Policy magazine from Summer 1980, “Dateline Syria: Fin de Régime?” Yes, I know: Stanley F. Reed III jumped the gun by (at least) 31 years but that does not deter me from repeating his quasi-prediction of the Assad demise.
