Lebanese Minister of Information, Michel Samaha, talked about the upcoming American elections on Syrian TV. The following are excerpts from his comments:
Samaha: The most important thing that could happen in the coming American elections if Kerry wins is that the Neo-Conservatives leave. They have a complete ideology regarding their treatment of the world and specifically the Middle East and the Near East to which we belong. If they leave, the (real) American America will return, with all its internal contradictions and even with its reservations of us. But then we could have a better dialogue and have a better perspective of the American interest and the shared interests.
