Ahmet of Tunisia sent me this: "Asad, CNN brings in this great democrat to weigh in on the subject while in the process it continues to insult the intelligence of Arab and Jordanian people:
"Blitzer asked the king whether he thought it would be acceptable for al-Assad to flee to another country or if he wanted him to be tried for war crimes.
"If Bashar leaving the scene and exiting Syria brings a stop to the violence and creates a political transition -- that's a lesser of evils," he said.
Abdullah said the international community must consider that, if al-Assad were to leave, questions would arise over who would replace him and how that might affect the restoration of order in Syria.
"It's not so much the individual, it's the system, and does the system allow for political transition?" Abdullah said. "And that's where I have my doubts.""
