"By turns defiant and threatening, President Bashar Assad vowed Tuesday to use an 'iron hand' to crush what he called the terrorists and saboteurs behind Syria's 10-month-old uprising in which thousands of people have been killed. In his first speech since June, Assad showed a steely confidence in the face of the uprising, one of the bloodiest of the Arab Spring. But opponents called it a rambling address by a leader who is dangerously out of touch." (01/10/12)
