Before Assad turned to politics, he worked as doctor in the Syrian army, from his graduation in 1988 until the death of his brother in 1994.

He was groomed to become the next Syrian president, and after the death of his father in 2000, Bashar became just that, winning more than 90 % of the votes, as he was unopposed.
