President Bashar al-Assad has attempted to distance himself from the army, in an interview with ABC News. He said of the army: "I don't own them. I'm president. I don't own the country, so they're not my forces." He denied there was any order to kill protesters, saying: "no government in the world kills its people". He also said he did not feel guilty about attacks on protesters because he had done his best.
With all of the talk about perennial presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s Blind Trust, he’s here to ask for YOUR blind trust! Your blind trust in voting for him! Look at him! He’s the Special Needs candidate…he has special needs because he makes his money in a special way that has to be specially protected for rich people! (His dog Seamus, who he strapped to the roof of his car for a 12-hour drive to a vacation spot, is by his side).
A salute to all you surviving Obamabots getting ready to soldier on into this year's Presidential Freak Circus -- all you Progressives who were willingly, knowingly, happily fooled by all the hope'n'change talk four years ago. The slightest bit of research could've shown you that not only was Obama not a Progressive, but there was no way you were going to get anything resembling what you all assumed you were going to get once Obama took office -- namely, the political equivalent of a pony. You did think Obama was going to get you all ponies, right?
Kuwait-born Canadian citizen Naser Al-Raas (with severe heart problems) faces 5 year jail in Bahrain, for supposedly having taken place to demonstrations against the king. A unjust way to attract western attention while the 1 year anniversary of the Bahraini spring approaches... and the Obama administration fakes being ill-informed.
P.S.: There is a petition for his freedom to be signed in Amnesty's International site.
