Amid carnage of war, Syria readies for Assad re-election || Courtesy: Reuters


Supporters of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad attend a rally to support him and the army, at the coastal city of Jableh in Lattakia

Some express their loyalty in general displays of patriotism, while others explicitly call on the 48-year-old president to announce he will stand in the vote, which is due to be held by July.

Just 18 months ago, Assad’s grip over his capital seemed to be slipping as rebels gained ground around Damascus. Since then his forces have consolidated control in central Syria.

    How long will you dance reblogging GWMH?
    Like any coward hiding his/her DNA & Coordinates beneath dumb avatar. You have the luxury to intimidate Muslims only. You will be digging your grave if you criticize others. You’re a lowlife nutjob dependent, they will starve you to death if you did. Muslims ain’t sitting ducks. You will realize that when it’s too late.
    Disagreement is healthy attitude. Politics is sport not martyrdom. If you ain’t stoic talk cricket.
    Flagging ‘FACTS’ offensive ain’t turning ‘em ‘FALSE’. It will get you nowhere.
    You never know you might be framed up as THAT-J✡RK who f✡ckedup a clever conversation and forged it into boring argument using GoogledJunk, WikiTrash and Mediawh✡res Horsemanure to get to headlines.
    You probably ain’t fucking dishonest and professional but this advance proves that you ain’t only outfoxed but outf✡cked too.
    Being unaware of precedent ain’t making you only stooopid but that dumb✡ss who likes to read what he likes to read.

    Now Go on and disable the reblogg button. I got my own.
    I am reblogging it anyway.
    Go on and watch it on your reader.
