A Self-dependent Citizen President

I have been doing this since my first day in office, I haven’t changed my nature.  I would like to stress an important point, which is that my security detail hasn’t changed before or during the war.  It has remained the same, stated H.E. President Bashar  Al-Assad in his recent interview with Russia 24 and Rossiya Sevodnya.

We haven’t introduced any additional measures, neither in relation to driving a car nor with regards to the security motorcade.  They remain the same….I drive my car because I don’t like the trappings of the position; this is my nature.  I’m self-dependent, I have always driven my car and that hasn’t change, underscored President Assad.

I prefer to let my personality dictate the position rather than allow the trappings of power to dictate who I am.  That is it Mr. President and this is one of the infinite reasons which made Syria victorious on the path of Correction Movement led by the father of all Syria, the late president Hafez Al-Assad.

This has always been my principle: before and during the war, and it will not change.  Neither terrorism nor anything else will succeed in changing my nature and my relationship with people. This is but a part and parcel of what you believe Mr. President as one of the strengths of any official who cares about his relationship with people, and who likes to be as close to them as possible.

The brave captain who has been navigating the ship among the risky storms, if not tsunamis, is thus pursuing the march of the late President  Hafez  Al-Assad, who  on November 16th, 1970 was able to rescue Syria  from bloody coups, chaos, unrest, and  to wash away the humiliation of June, 1967, to restore elegance and civilization role to a country, plagued with long thorny years of occupation, colonialism and all-related aspects of darkness and backwardness.

Syria's today brave citizen president has been able and successful in leading the fight against terrorism and its multi-national backers and financers.

As the late President, the Leader of the Correction, stated clearly in the 70's, through the correction Movement, " we have emerged out of chaos, ended the isolation between the masses and leadership,…. put an end to the spoiling of the country economy, as well as to the exploitation and wasting of the civilians means of living,’’

 ‘If we weren’t able to achieve victory, let us spare our generations to come defeat,’’ Yes, your Excellency, you did spare us the many of unbearable defeats. Actually, the ongoing fierce war against Syrians was long expected by the late far-sighted President; thus, many of our steadfastness factors in the face of these attacks were strongly made by the late President and well-safeguarded and developed by H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad.

The Syrian Lion untimely departed, and only in body, to afterlife. His last words, in a telephone conversation with former Lebanese  President Emile Lahoud , so that we would ‘ inherit better than they did’ do always echo deep in the Syrians’ heart and conscience and mind. Indeed, we have inherited the modern Syria of today, the legacy and national and steadfastness stances of the most beloved like-father president so far.

This very inheritance has so far enabled us to encounter and foil many of the most evil conspiracies in modern history against us. President Bashar promised the masses in his first landmark inauguration speech in the year 2000,  to honestly pursue the March of Correction, to naturally modernize the inherited as to keep pace with up-to-dates: " because the great leader, Hafez al-Assad has prepared for us a firm ground, solid basis and a great heritage of values and principles which he defended and adhered to, till he parted with us and moved to the afterlife.

President Bashar has indeed kept, as ever where words are deeds, his 2000 inauguration pledges  that the  trust in  and love to Syrians  are infinite …the man you have known and loved some of his merits and exchanged trust and love with him will not change at all once he assumes his post. He came out of the people and lived with them and shall remain one of them.

You may expect to see him everywhere whether in the work place or on the streets or in your picnics in order to learn from you and sharpen his determination by his contact with you and shall work for you as he has always done.
