Meanwhile, other regime assholes were busy forcing children with cerebral palsy, yes, cerebral palsy, to demonstrate in favor of the regime and in protest against growing international pressures on it to amend its ways.

Frankly, had it not been for the all-too “voluntary” gullibility of the Syrian people, and the sheer brutality of the regime, Syria’s leaders would have had the lifespan of head lice at best. Brutality does indeed work when brains don’t. But, brutal or not, it is time to end this charade. It has lasted for far too long.
