      Bashar al-Assad's Terrorism in Syria

> Bashar al-Assad says that he wants the Geneva II conference that kicks
> off tomorrow to focus on the problem of terrorism in Syria but when he
> speaks of terrorism he is referring to the imperialist definition of
> /"terrorism"/ which certainly includes bombs delivered by cars but
> excludes bombs delivered by planes. Specifically, he using the term
> the way it has been promoted by the US imperialists, especially after
> the 9/11 attacks, to mean exclusively attacks by Islamic militants. He
> hopes to use the western phobia of Islamic terrorism to win support
> for his regime and its crackdown on Syrians who want to oust his
> regime. That is why he claims that his opposition is 80-90% al Qaeda.
> Unfortunately for him and the western imperialists, the dictionary
> definition of terrorist is somewhat broader. From Merriam-Webster we
> get this definition <http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/terrorism>:
