Assad supporters, even the most ardent, take great umbrage at being called Assadists. Would they prefer being called fascists? If they really do want peace on earth & their Assadism is based on ignorance that’s just swell but it doesn’t change the fact that they’re marching with fascists, nationalists, anti-Semites, Islamophobes & are part of ushering in massive defeats for freedom struggles around the world.
If you don’t understand Syria, don’t take a position in support of Assad. The road to hell is paved less with good intentions & more with those who jumped on the bandwagon to be trendy.
