From Syria: Tales out of Assad's torture crypts

From Syria: Tales out of Assad's torture crypts
2.5 5

It seems to me that with Russian support, Bashar Assad has become "Ivan The Terrible" of Syria. And the "Torture Archipelago" of Syria sound like Stalin's Gulag Archipelago! Assad's torture archipelago might be an exaggeration of the Syria rebels and the Western intelligence propaganda that supports them. But I am inclined to believe it because I have seen video in which a Syrian army officer beats an injured protester in the ground, and then one of them jumps on top of him with his boots 3-4 times to crush his bones. That kind of brutality matches the CIA's brutality in Guantanamo and Bagram prison in Afghanistan tortures, but at least the CIA doesn't torture Americans.

If Assad feels, or if he is ill-advised by his trusted Syrian Rasputins that he will survive as president by killing and torturing Syrians, I have this warning for him. You won't survive, sir! And you will probably be hunted after you are ousted, and probably share the fate of Leon Trotsky and Anastasio Somoza. It is only a matter of time, and your time is running out!
