    history repeats itself


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     mugur shot photos of Syrians gathered in front of the country's Parliament Wednesday, awaiting President Bashar al-Assad's speech. After watching the speech in his hotel room, he said, 'If you look at this moment, he could have turned the whole thing around.' Though Assad acknowledged that Syrians want reform, he offered 'no concrete facts.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    I am a business consultant passionate about photography. over the past 15 years I've been working for hundreds of brands, both local and international. in my strategy book, the speech delivered today by a very emotional president, will not put an end to the protests. I am coming from a country that 22 years ago blamed the killing of hundreds of innocent romanians on 'terrorist' elements...up until this day, no terrorist was caught dead or alive...I was full of hope for the wonderful syrian people until this moment...I am now worried...

    my prayers are with them and I hope that this time it will be the first time I am wrong in my strategic assessment...
