BLITZER’S BLOG: Syrian leader’s nervous eye on Libya

By CNN's Wolf Blitzer

(CNN) - If you’re watching Tripoli from Damascus and your name is Bashar al-Assad, you’re very nervous.

Only a few months ago, who would have thought that Moammar Gadhafi would go down this way? Then again, who would have thought that Hosni Mubarak would wind up in a hospital bed in a courtroom cage?

The Arab spring continues to unfold in dramatic ways.

BLITZER’S BLOG: Assad must go – but where?

By CNN's Wolf Blitzer

(CNN) - Now that President Obama has declared that Bashar al-Assad must go, my question is this: Where does the Syrian leader go?

I suspect he can’t simply retire somewhere in Syria. The protesters in Syria no doubt would like to arrest him and try him for killing more than 2,000 people in the last few months. They probably would like to see him in a courtroom cage – sort of like what Egyptians have done to their former president, Hosni Mubarak.
