When the Boy-Butcher of Damascus calls on the dictator of Egypt to “heed the will of the people” and step down:
The Syrian regime, which is seeking to crush a more than two-year revolt against its own rule, is urging Egypt’s president to step down in line with his people’s wishes.
Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi says the only way Egypt can overcome its crisis is if President Mohammed Morsi realizes that the overwhelming majority of the Egyptian people reject his presence and want him out.
Al-Zoubi told reporters in Damascus Wednesday that Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood is a “terrorist” organization and a “U.S. tool.”
This, of course, comes as a sweet bit of revenge for Morsi’s call for Assad to resign. “Two can play that hypocritical game,” and all that.
Still, with over 100,000 casualties so far in Syria’s civil war, millions of refugees, and strong evidence of the use of poison gas by the Assad regime, it takes an extra spoonful of shamelessness to be able to advise another government about how to save its country.
