A Facebook post said to be written by the son of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad dares Barack Obama to attack Syria, saying, “America doesn’t have soldiers” – it has “cowards with new technology.”
While it is virtually impossible to determine with absolute certainty whether 11-year-old Hafez al-Assad wrote the Facebook post, minimally, it may offer a glimpse into the mindset of Syria’s ruling elite as the country braces for a potential strike by Obama in response to a chemical weapons attack on Aug. 21.
“I just want them to attack sooo much, because I want them to make this huge mistake of beginning something that they don’t know the end of it. What did Hezbollah have back then? Some street fighters and some small rockets and a pile of guns – but they had belief, in theirselves [sic] and in their country and that’s exactly what’s gonna happen to America if it chooses invasion because they don’t know our land like we do, no one does, victory is ours in the end no matter how much time it takes.
They may have the best army in the world, maybe the best airplanes, ships, tanks than ours, but soldiers? No one has soldiers like the ones we do in Syria. America doesn’t have soldiers, what it has is some cowards with new technology who claim themselves liberators.”
Ouch, O. From the sound of things, it doesn’t appear that Hafez fears you either.
As Barack Obama continues his Bugs Bunny-Yosemite Sam kabuki dance with Bashar al-Assad, I can’t help but believe that Muslim leaders throughout the Middle East are laughing at America’s inept president – more and more every day.
