The Syrian "government"....

Let's be precisely honest about this:

There is no "government" in Syria.

Not in any sense that we can understand within our Western traditions of political thought.

The people of Syria are being killed relentlessly by a cadre of entrenched cultural-financial-military elites, many of whom have goofy, nominal titles like "President" and "Minister of Defense"……

The people who have the top hand in Syria don't qualify as a "government."

One bright spot: these thugs have but one life to give for their country, and I wish they'd get on with it.
