US President George W. Bush's remarks last week that he has lost patience with Syrian President Bashar Assad are arrogant and bode ill for the region, a Syrian newspaper said Monday. An editorial in the government-sponsored Tishrin daily said Bush's statements demonstrated that his administration is determined to end its term "as it started, with aggression, occupation and power." Bush, at a press conference on Thursday, criticized Assad and called on him to stop interfering in Lebanese politics.
