He wasn’t even supposed to be Syria’s leader , his elder brother was trained for the role.
When the barbarians attacked his country, he could had :
- surrendered or fled-
John Kerry offered him money and a comfortable life for his family
-betrayed his allies and friends, Russia, Iran
-become intimidated by the formidable force the enemy threw against him and his country
- overwhelmed and made mistakes
the enormous propaganda against him
He chose to stay and fight . With great courage and tenacity.
Never surrendering or showing despair .
His government was supposed “ to collapse in 2 weeks/ months/ years” and he was supposed “to go”.
He's still there, in his beloved country, more loved and respected than ever.
“Every inch of Syria will be liberated “, he said in 2011 , when the war against Syria started.
For those who don’t know, Assad means Lion .
He lived up to his name.
I dedicate this drawing to Bashar al Assad and all the Syrian martyrs .
With my apologies for what the western governments did in our names and without our consent .
