Ophthalmologist Becomes Dictator

FYI: According to a variety of sources, President Bashar al-Assad never had plans to head up the Syrian government. Bashar studied medicine at Damascus University. He served in the Syrian army as a physician. He then studied at Western Eye Hospital, one of the London-based teaching hospitals affiliated with St. Mary’s group. The ophthalmologist was promoted to president designate when his older brother died in a car accident.
