Assad, the lightweight among Middle Eastern dictators, and the fraudical son who couldn’t fill his father’s shoes even if he stuffed them with a thousand Dr. Sholls, has spoken for the 4th time since the beginning of the Revolution, threatening mayhem and offering a pale and uninspired impersonation of Gaddafi. What did anyone really expect? Psychopathy is the family trait, not smarts.
Tuesday 10, 2012
Today’s death toll: 39. The Breakdown: 15 in Deir Ezzor City, 3 (2 brothers and their sister) in Idlib, 5 including a child in Homs city, 1 in Douma (a defector), 1 in Hama City and 1 in Qamishly.
Loyalists assaulted Arab League Monitors paying a visit to Lattakia City lightly injuring 11. The attack, we are told, did not prevent the delegation from carrying its scheduled activities.
The Syrian Invasion: Would a NATO tank war against Bashar al-Assad’s army end up like the Iraqi mess?
This time it’s my mother’s turn to be mentioned in the press, but she’s much more used to it, I guess: “Many artists have expressed their disappointment over the crimes committed by the Syrian regime. Seventy-year-old Muna Wassef, one the highest paid actresses in the Arab world, and a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, has played a multitude of remarkable roles. Though in the 1960s, she shortly worked at the Military Theatre connected to the defence ministry and was married to the Army General Muhammad Shahin, Wassef became a fierce activist supporting the uprising. As an act of protest, in May 2011 she asked the Syrian TV Production Company to strip her of the Order of Merit-Excellent Degree for her artistic accomplishments.”
Naturally, all of today’s rallies were dedicated to rejecting Assad’s latest speech.
