Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has for a decade fooled many figures around the world with his civilized appearance, good manners and gentleness. Nevertheless, anyone who knew him in reality discovered a horrid person. Bashar is like Al Pacino in his role of gang leader in The Godfather that depicts him as the most civilized family member, but then we discover that, in fact, he is the most dangerous member of the mafia.
Indeed, Bashar al-Assad’s appearance is not comparable to that of crazy North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, but, in reality, Assad is worse than him. Ever since he succeeded his father, Hafez al-Assad, 10 years before the revolution, he committed a series of terrible crimes and masterminded endless wars. He has assassinated a number of Lebanese figures that outnumbered his father’s records during the civil war in the seventies.
Bashar orchestrated a war from Syria that was allegedly an Iraqi resistance war against what he called American occupation for about seven years. During that war, more than 100,000 people, 3,000 of whom were Americans, were killed.

Bashar succeeded in concealing his truth; many fell for the civilized appearance trick, especially in the West. Whoever had met him has admitted to being fooled. One of them was former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who was eager to support him, lift the economic sanctions imposed on Syria and host the Syrian president and his wife in a national ceremony in front of the rest of the leaders. For almost two years, Sarkozy worked hard to defend Assad in all opportunities and was politically supporting him, but, eventually, he discovered the truth; despite his Italian suit, Bashar is nothing but a criminal dictator, so Sarkozy became one of the most enthusiastic leaders to overthrow him.SHOW MORE
