"Wow" is the most accurate response I can come up with. "Wow," Bashar.

Physician, heal thyself. Pot, kettle. etc.

I've got to give Assad this though, it takes massive clanking balls to tell another foreign leader to step down due to political unrest while killing thousands of your own citizens.

The word is delusional. Assad is delusional if he thinks Syrians like him. However, the army likes him.

Attempt at meta image-crafting?

"See people of Syria, what leader who was chemically bombing his citizenry over popular dissent would wade into the Egyptian situation and advise that leader step down? Who would you believe, my grand staging actions, or your lying eyes?"

Syria is an entirely different situation than Egypt but it's not like you monkeys will understand.
Syria is in a sectarian civil proxy war. Egypt is not.

If your military can summarily suspend the constitution and depose an entire government without lifting a finger, you don't have much of a democracy at all.

We understand. That's why most of us aren't advocating action there. Whoever wins, we lose.

You are naive if you believe Assad used chemical weapons on the people. You probably ate up the whole WMD and Iran is gonna nuke Israel propaganda too.

The Egyptians and Syrians brought destruction upon themselves when they tried to conspire against God's chose people...

What a terrible mistake. The article is credited to Reuters when it is clearly an item from The Onion.

Reason and logic are always trumped by emotion and delusion in human relations.  You end up getting (div by 0) if you try to understand what the motives are for some people.

Sorry, theatrical hyperbole there. I shoulda dropped the chemically, as his conventional weaponry does seem to have a significant death toll associated. It was just meant as a frame for a guy who is not doing right by his people.

I think at this point, Assad knows he's going down and just wants a few good chuckles on the way out.

Assad was one of the most secular leaders in the middle east prior to the so called revolution, just imagine what Syria would be like if the Rebels won? That's why Syrians supportAssad. They do not want what these foreign rebels want.

given the context, yeah NATO probably did understate his support but alleging a full 20 point swing is a bit much. Got a source?

People often don't understand or forget how secularines makes people better. Compare for example Stalin and Hitler. Secular Stalin was obviously better leader

I'm sure an obviously rigged election is a better source than an internal NATO report gauging support ahead of an intervention.

Wait no, the opposite of that thing I said.

Not necessarily brass clankers. Might be a case of willful obtuseness. Or severe cynicism.
