Bashar Al Assad is reelected president of Syria with over ten million votes, almost 89% of votes received. Foreign governments and the UN discount this vote because of the ongoing war in Syria, despite the fact that they encouraged and even carried out elections during wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Oh the hypocrisy.
Western governments and media claim the Syrian people were forced to vote for Bashar Al Assad. I say, “Even the Syria citizens around the world who voted at embassies or even flew to Syria to vote?” Forced to vote? I say, “Were they forced to smile and laugh and dance in the streets to celebrate the president’s sweeping reelection?”
There were 22 million citizens living in Syria before the war. According to election results, almost 60% of Syrian citizens voted yesterday. That number would have been vastly larger had Western nations not blocked the votes of Syrians living overseas. And still, that number exceeds the voter turnout of many past presidential elections in the United States.
The people of Syria have spoken. They have voted to reelect President Bashar Al Assad. Will the world listen? Will the US, Saudi Arabia and other nations respect the choice of the Syrian people or will they continue to send foreign fighters money, supplies and weapons to continue their bid for regime change? Does democracy choose a leader through the ballot box, or on the battlefield? The Syrian people have spoken. May their decision be respected by all.
Best Wishes Syria, Best wishes Mr. President !
