The election in Syria are like the elections in the USA. He who has the gold rules. The common people of the USA don't have a vote. The GOP and Corporations run the country. So the USA should not complain about elections when our systems is corrupt. Suppression of voting and limit access that the GOP pushed shows we are no different when it comes to elections.

Once again misleading news on the mainstream media. I'd like to point out just for you unplugged individuals, there is overwhelming support for Bashar and there are other perfectly legitimate candidates. He has seen his country through three difficult years against an internationally funded attack carried out by puppet extremists. Homes can be re-built but wars cannot be rewon.
