The death of Muammar al-Qaddafi today shows what’s in store for the leadership of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, which will probably be the next group of tyrants to be thrown out of office and potentially killed, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), told The Cable.

He called on the Obama administration to ratchet up the pressure on the Syrian government and redouble its efforts to convince other countries to do the same.
