How far will Assad go?

Ten months after the start of the Syrian uprising, we analyse the words of its embattled president: his denial, his threats and his defiance. Melissa Bell's panel discusses what the one-and-a-half hour speech tells us about the strength of the regime of Bashar al al-Assad, besieged as it is by sanctions and under continued pressure from within.

  • Monzer MAKHOUS. Member of the Syrian National Council;
  • Jonathan PARIS. Middle East Analyst; Senior Fellow, South Asia Center - Atlantic Council;
  • Andrew TABLER. Next Generation Fellow, Washington Institute for Near East policy (from Washington);
  • Marietje SCHAAKE. MEP, Group of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe; ALDE Spokesperson for Syria (from Brussels).

Watch the second part here.
