This comment appeared yesterday on the Huffington Posts daily article about Syria. There were many people there who were quick to defend Assad, such as claiming that the count of the dead was "propaganda" or calling the rebels "terrorists." I find this interesting only because when it was Egypt and Libya in the headline the Huffington Posters were more or less of one mind behind the protesters. But not in this case:
Hm. Perhaps the fact that Assad is pro-Iran and anti-Israel has something to do with it.
