|Assad, the Dictator.|
The human propensity to patriarchy, the cornerstone of most theologies, invests absolute power in murderous leaders like Assad. International conventions assure him of his life by outlawing surgical assassination of him and his government, while it commits atrocities. Nothing was learned from totalitarianism of the past. The international men's club of leaders would rather sacrifice the lives of millions than turn on one of their own. Assad, even as a murderous aristocrat, is still an aristocrat to be protected.
Syria is about people over aristocracy and dynasty. While I detest violence, I also detest the hypocrisy of international power, practiced by the Obamas and Putins of the world. There is no human justice in the policy of U.N., E.U., U.S. or Russia toward Syria. There is a constant bowing to the power of business, such as arms dealing, and the privileges of power.
