The US says the elections in Syria don’t count because some people were not able to vote. They forget to mention that the people unable to vote were either living in a country like the United States, which shut down Syrian embassies and wouldn’t allow Syrian election officials to tally votes, or they were living in “rebel” controlled territory, where the “rebels” wouldn’t allow them to vote, and where they would be killed for voting for Bashar Al Assad. Nonetheless, if EVERY SINGLE eligible voter in these situations had been able to vote, and had they voted against Bashar Al Assad (in fact, most of them would have voted for him), President Al Assad still would have won by a larger percentage of the vote than Barack Obama did in his re-election.
Please, let’s stop trying to justify arming the anti-government fighters in Syria with the bullshit lie that we’re trying to help them free themselves from an oppressive dictator. Clearly, the Syrian people disagree with us wholeheartedly.
