Well, it just might strike some people as odd that you are so intent on 
making Assad look good. So I am providing some background. We are 
dealing with a current on the American left that is okay with calling 
Syria a "socialist state". That is highly problematic and explains all 
the frenetic spin-doctoring. I doubt that you or the PSL would, for 
example, do that kind of "behind the news" journalism for the government 
of Sri Lanka that is also involved with bloody repression. But then 
again, since it calls itself "The Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri 
Lanka", who knows.
