Jesus fucking christ. Never thought I’d be defending Hafez al-Assad, but this article is one giant sledgehammer against common sense.

There’s no way I have the time to dismantle your points one by one, but I have to ask:

  1. Do you know what genocidal means? It doesn’t mean killing a few thousand people. Massacres and genocide are both horrible, but they’re not the same thing.
  2. Seriously, no mention of Lebanon in any of this (other than saying it was once ruled by the Ottoman Empire, which, btw, is not a synonym for Turkey)?
  3. And the Russians are the only (foreign) bad guys here? Really? Not the various ISIS/jihad motherfuckers or Turkey or Iran or the Kurds or America or anyone else?
Like what you read? Give Sam Ursu a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
