TO GO WITH AFP STORY SYRIA-CONFLICT-POLITICS-ASSAD A combo made with file pictures taken in Syria on distinct dates shows TOP: Members of President Bashar al-Assad's inner circle, brother Maher al-Assad (L),44, his cousin Rami Makhluf (C), 43, and his Political Security chief Sunni Rustom Ghazali (R). BOTTOM: Syria's Vice President Faruk al-Sharaa (L), advisor to Bashar al-Assad Alawite Buthaina Shaaban (C),59, and also vice president Sunni Najah al-Attar (R), 79. The Syrian vice president's criticism of leader Bashar al-Assad has highlighted the cracks in the regime's highest ranks, pitting supporters of compromise against the president's hardline inner circle. In an interview published on December 17 in a pro-Damascus Lebanese daily, Sharaa, who for 22 years served as foreign minister, said he favours a negotiated solution to the conflict, rather than the president's strategy of crushing the rebellion militarily.
