You're talking about Syria, right?

Sound familiar?

A former vice president of Syria called from exile for the overthrow of the regime he served for decades, saying Friday that "a shameless mafia" is running the country and that its president surrounds himself with sycophantic advisers and is unfit to rule.

Khaddam described the Syrian regime as corruption-riddled, with (President Bashar) Assad's cousins involved.

"A shameless mafia is in control of the country in the true sense of the word," he said.

As for Assad, Khaddam described him as erratic and ignorant "of the world situation."

"The problem is that those surrounding him incorrectly read the international and regional events and situations and they give their conclusions and he acts on the basis of these wrong conclusions. But he does not trust those who use their minds. He trusts those who are hypocrites, who depict him as a genius and a unique leader," Khaddam said.
Imagine your country run by such a regime. Boy, that would suck.
