I don't know which country you are from. I think Assad defends a part of his country and people.
Fact is that there are citizens who have been attacked by Assad and for that I think you can not call him a hero, in my opinion.

My question is could you explain me why you think Assad is a hero and why the West is so bad?

The roots of the current problems in the Middle East date back to the European colonial period and the Cold War, including the creation of Israel, the bolstering of the Sauds, the overthrow of Mossdadegh, the support for muslim extremism and jihadism, etc.

North Korea might actually outweigh the Iraqi issue, or perhaps Russia Ukraine, or Israel Palestine outweighs the Iraq issue.

I'd have thought they ultimately date back to some fella called Jesus and then another one called Mohammed.
