The notion that Assad is the lesser evil is an obscenity. This is a 
brutal dictatorship which, according to the Syrian Network for Human 
Rights, is responsible for 95 percent of the civilian deaths, and which 
the UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria has indicted for “the crimes 
against humanity of extermination, murder, rape or other forms of sexual 
violence, torture, imprisonment, enforced disappearance and other 
inhuman acts.” The regime uses rape systematically as policy; and a 
report by a team of war crimes investigators documented “industrial 
scale killing,” with up to 11,000 killed “systematically” in detention.
