One thing is very certain, the middle east is in shambles and is on the verge of a regional war. This will pit, not directly of course, the United States and Russia, just like during the cold war. Putin is a cold war soldier, whereas obama is not.
If things don't take a dramatic turn I suspect by mid summer there will be war in the middle east. And may God help us!
Politics I supposed to be the second-oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.
Headline is false.. it is not the same as to the link it is linking too, and the content of that link does not state that they are seizing all citizens cash, which is what the Drudge headline implies. It is miss-leading at best, and out right biased at worst. Why? oh yea, Drudge is a right wing site, and most American right wingers hate Europe and the EU. So plastering that headline does nothing but promote that idea. Fact is, it is the wealthy in 2 banks who are going to have money taken and most of them are not even citizens, but residents. So not only is the headline miss-leading but it is actually factually wrong.
And then there is the headline about the protests in France about gay marriage. It is quite funny...
"Hundreds of thousands take to Paris streets to protest gay marriage..."
While the actual headline states
"Clashes, riot police at French anti-gay marriage protest"
Oh yea Drudge never writes anything bad about the right wing... so he tries to promote his homophobic right wing views by downplaying the violent protests among right wing bigots in France... go figure! Usually he would go after France no matter what, but when it comes to his fellow right wingers and gay marriage he downplays things...
There are similar examples day after day.
Drudge is a hack of the right wing. He has lost all credibility. He use to be quite good at the start, but since he went right wing neo con nuts, then his site quality has gone down big time.

So is Assad dead or is it just unconfirmed rumor?
This site seems to say it's a done-deal.
Assad Confirmed Dead, Iran Attempts To Control Syria Army
But, others dispute it.Jerusalem, Israel --- March 24, 2013 … Russian media sources have confirmed that Syria President Bashar Assad was shot by an Iranian bodyguard Saturday night.
"The lone assassination pumped several bullets at point blank range into Assad," said the source. "Assad was rushed to Al-Shami Hospital in Damascus in critical condition. He died on the operating table from heart failure resulting from massive blood loss."
An Israeli security analyst believes the report to be accurate.
Assad death report dismissed as ?ridiculous? rumor ? RT News
It's not a rumor, it's total BS.
Anyone who believes this without substantial proof would buy the Brooklyn Bridge from a Nigerian Prince.
The OP on this thread reminds me of the "intelligence" that the G.W. Bush mis-administration used to justify going to war in Iraq.
That worked out great, eh?

Yeah, cuz the Col. don't look nothing like Assad.
No where does Drudge say that all citizens cash is being seized, you added the "all". He says that "Cyprus to seize citizens' cash...". The fact that it is from two banks isn't emphasized by Drudge but he is highlighting a new strategy of taxing bank accounts which to most people is alarming. Perhaps not to you, but I haven't read any of your comments on that issue.
Drudge is definitely pro gun rights and he often has stories, like the one about Jim Carrey and others who make money in using guns in movies but wants more gun control in society. Not sure how he feels about gay rights, I had always heard that he was gay, but I don't really care.
You are thus far, unconvincing.
