Syrian president Bashar al-Assad is this week's Cunt of the Week.
Since the Syrian peace plan came into effect on April 12th, Assad's regime has slowed down its killing, but it never actually stopped. The world, however, carried on as if perhaps Assad might remain president as long as he stopped mass murdering his citizens quite so openly. The news of the assault on Houla has shocked millions of people back to reality, people who, funnily enough, react with revulsion, anger and disgust when they learn of children being butchered. Hilary Clinton called for Assad's "rule by murder" to come an end.
News is just breaking that the UN Security Council is to meet shortly to discuss this atrocity. You do have to wonder how Russia and China are going to maintain their support for Assad's regime now. Not to worry, these cunts don't let a few dead children distract their self serving agendas.
What is truly fucking unforgivable is the reaction of the Syrian government which is simply denying its involvement. The Washington Post reports Syrian foreign ministry spokesman Jihad Makdissi “has categorically denied responsibility of the Syrian forces for the massacre”, pathetically blaming "armed terrorist groups". He even had the balls to say that "brutal killing doesn’t belong to the ethics of the Syrian army" which is a downright fucking lie.
Let's face it, the peace plan was never going to be anything more than a band aid on a gunshot wound. What Syria needs is for Assad to be deposed and brought to trial for committing crimes against humanity. A far second best would be his death at the hands of the Syrian people.
Assad is a cunt of unimaginable proportions and he is surrounded by people who loyally commit mass murder for him and others who will lie to the world about it. The news this week is a tragic reminder that it is time this cunt was dealt with once and for all.
