Syria a Victim?

At least Time is claiming that as a possibility. There’s certainly a difference between Assad Jr’s use of rent-a-mobs for diplomatic intimidation, and allowing car bombers to wander about the capital.

Can’t say that I have much sympathy for junior; he’s clearly been busy supporting terrorism and unrest wherever he can – Lebanon, Israel, Iraq, etc. He’s also become Iran’s junior partner, potentially painting a big, red target on his own back.
