Nudnik - n. U.S. colloq. Esp. in Jewish usage: a pestering, nagging, or irritating person
Syrian President Bashar Assad says in a newspaper interview that he suspects the United States might eventually take military action against Syria.Maybe now the Syrian handover of Saddam's half brother to Iraq makes a little more sense. Little Assad is scared ... and he's freaking out!
Assad told the Rome-based daily "La Repubblica" that he has seen the possibility of an attack on his country since the end of the initial invasion in Iraq.
Assad said he does not believe an attack is imminent. But he said "the language used by the White House indicates a campaign similar to the one that preceded the attack on Iraq."
