Right! I don't really get this discussion about Whether Assad is a liberal or not. I can understand the benefits that a socailist system can bring. But a socialist system that incorporates nepotism, total control of the press and

Wikipedia

?

Now that's not really socialist in my book, I think it's more in line with Religious Totalitarianism

But then how is Kuwait so different? So Hopefully Kuwait (where similar to Iraq, a Sunni minority rule a Shiite majority) is next.
A) Syria, already in the times of Assad Senior, stopped to be Socialist, and under Assad Junior, stopped Socialism alltogether

B) Kuwait has a Sunni majority of some 65%, so that your comparison is wrong

C) Religious Totalitarianism ? This would mean total rule of a religious group, and this in Secularist Syria is NOT the case
