Brother, i will bring evidence, but you have got to be honest here. His army is huge, and to claim his generals, all of his soldiers are mas'umeen itself is incorrect, no?

Furthermore, as leader, he authorizes use of weapons. He has authorizes the use of Barrel Bombs. These bombs are pretty indiscriminate, the shrapnel flies everywhere, and it can and has maimed thousands of women and children.

It's not surprising in a complex war, in an area as small as syria, in such complexities with heavy weaponry, atrocities have been committed by both sides.

Assad has admitted to using and allowing Barrel Bombs.

Here are a list of reported Barrel Bomb attacks: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Syrian_Civil_War_barrel_bomb_attacks

While there are definitely false reports, to claim it is all one big lie is similar to those who claim 9/11 was an inside job.

Video evidence of Barrel bombs being dropped, and in many instances, it looks like civilian populated regions. The opposition  do not own helicopters either:

Hello,

Sorry to disappoint you but I am neither.  Just your average American citizen.  I spent 7 years in the United States Air Force and now I design industrial air pollution control equipment. 

I do find your reaction to views that differ from yours interesting.  But, if we all had the same opinion I think the World would be a pretty boring place.

And, thanks for the narrative regarding the start of the war in Syria.  I do not agree with it in total.  But, you have some interesting points.

All the Best,

David

Please accept my apology on behalf of that user. I don't want you to feel based on one user making foul and absurd conspiracy comments against you, that the rest of us think in that way.

You and i may have major disagreements on politics, and current events, but it is not on me to start to speculate your race, religion, and country of origin.

"On 10 July 2000, he was elected president succeeding Hafez al-Assad, his father, who had led Syria for 30 years and died in office a month prior. In both the Syrian presidential election, 2000 and subsequent 2007 election, Bashar Assad received votes in his favor in the upper 90th percentile in uncontested elections where other candidates were not permitted to run against him.[2][3] On 16 July 2014, Bashar Assad was sworn in for a new seven-year term, after taking 88.7% of votes in the presidential elections, running against two regime sanctioned candidates"

(Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bashar_al-Assad)

So in 2000 and 2007, Assad won in uncontested elections and in 2014, he won against two regime-sanctioned candidates. Sounds like a dictator to me and that in by itself is enough reason as to why he should leave office. As supporters of Imam Hussein's cause, we should not tolerate despots just because they're Shias or support other Shias.

 Bashar never stole power from his people he inherited his position as leader and with the support of his people. I can site you many examples where kings and queens ruled their people with love, justice, and mercy. Also, using this logic we can accuse Khumayni and Khamanei as being "dictators." The word dictator is a political tool that is used by the west and applied to leaders who are against the interests of the establishment in the west.

Also, even the west has admitted that Bashar Al Assad currently holds the majority support of his people. There was even a vote done in Lebanon among Syrian refugees where the majority of them voted in favor for Bashar.

Is Bashar is an Imam? No. Is he a religious person? No. But if it wasn't for him every single Christian from 7alab to Trablos would be cruficied, and every Shia masjid would be turned into rubble. I can't understand how people attack Bashar Al Assad and not look to his opponents. His opponents are paid mercenaries from the jail cells of Saudi Arabia sent to fight him.

Dear brother, sheikh,

You can not compare the system of Wilayatul Faqih, with the Assad dictatorship in syria. Iran also holds state-wide elections. Furthermore, a man like Bashar Al Assad is not fit to oil the dirt on the sandals of a man like ay.khamanei (ha).

Bashar Al Assad's Syria, while they did many good things, such as support Palestine, such as oppose american meddling in the middle east, such as support movements for justice, there was definitely repression at home.

Everyone agree's it is up to the syrian people to choose their own governments, leaders and presidents. Bashar Al Assad's father is responsible for terrible crimes, and Bashar himself is responsible for a violent crackdown on political dissidents.

He and the alawite's in charge and who have real control , have repressed other parties from really forming. There is religious freedom but very little political freedom.

This is what we shia's have got to try and make sure we do not fall into a trap for. Yes, Bashar is the lesser evil, yes, without him, there would be a shia genocide, and takfiri's would be in power, and zionist/american ideals would reign supreme,and gulf states would each try to balconize syria or atleast, control it indirectly through their terrorist forces they sponsor.

However, one can not ignore the fact that the syrian people have a right to determine their own leader. If Assad was so confident, he would have allowed far greater political freedom in 2005, 6, 7, etc. He would have allowed other parties to flourish and have proper elections.

 The question isn't if the Syrians have the right to elect their reform their system or not, its if this is the proper time to be going about it. As has been mentioned, Syria's current situation is extremely fragile and any change in the system can easily be manipulated to create chaos and collapse the country. Think in terms of the Iran's 2009 color revolution and how basher Assad or anyone on the resistance's side victory will never be accepted by the opposition and accusations of cheating will fly around. Environment of calm is required to make any proper reforms possible.

Assad has currently withstood all forms of attacks from the enemies of Allah to side with the Shia led resistance. That speaks volumes about the man. All he has to do is side with the empire, like the rest of the Muslim nations, and he will be showered with praise and protection. Context is very important in assessing the situation.

Salam dear bro, I hope this response finds you in good spirits.

My contention does not rely upon Bashar's moral character being on par with our sayeds, Khumayni and Khamanei. Rather, the term dictator cannot be by its essence immoral since we can cite many moral leaders who we can today label as "dictator." So using this as an argument against Bashaar cannot be true. 

Secondly, the majority of Bashaar's people support him. People seem to forget that Bashaar is a secular socialist from the Baathist party which is a pan Arab party. In Bashaar's and the armies eyes, its an Arab army versus a bunch of people in rags from eastern Europe, Somalia, Pakistan, And Afghanistan sent by the US and her allies to remove him.

Somali and Afghani salafists have no business in Syria. The main language of ISIS and FSA on the radio is almost always Bosnian, why is that?

Right now the best thing for us to do as Shia is to first deal with our problem we have in Syria and Iraq and then move on to our own problems which includes our allies like Bashaar if there is indeed a problem. 

Bashaar has punished army officials for going against his orders. Give me any army, I don't care if the Mukhtar al thaqafi is in charge of it. You will always have dissidents and people who don't listen.

Walaykum salam brother jazakAllah khayr,

You won't find a bigger opposor of the secterian terrorist groups in Syria than me. I have been vocally opposing them from early on. I consider Assad the lesser Evil, and would rather him in power, than them.

However, we must acknowledge that Assad's father was in power for decades, followed by his son.

In Iran, you would not have one family rule. The new leader would be chosen by an assembly of experts, and that process would be recycled. Furthermore, in Iran the president themselves is elected, and ay.khamanei (ha) does not meddle completely and totally, there is autonomy for the elected officials.

Assad on the other hand, has not been elected when you have the chance for no war, and other parties to properly form.

His alawite family control many of the key positions in syrian society.

As a follower of the ahlulbayt a.s, i have to be honest - his army has been responsible for crimes against humanity. The syrian people, once the fighting is over and the country rebuilds, need to engage in a political process whereby they form parties and engage in free and fair elections. Whoever they want to choose.

Salam

I guess this topic has been completely discussed and we are just repeating and repeating. It's become useless and boring. Most of Syria is under control of enemy. 

Kurds are acting on their own, NATO has increased his presence in area and they are looking for plan B after collapse of ISIS.

So lets talk about something new.

Btw, Barrel Bombs? I don't understand... is it bad to use barrels for munition delivery? And you are basing your allegation on something that "looks" like a crime?? You wrote that it "looks" like they are being dropped on civilians. Why the heck would Assad want to kill innocent civilians? He's not American or Zionist.

In that case, "civ populated regions", or urban areas, well, most of the videos are from urban areas. If Rats infest a neighborhood how do you challenge them and ask them to come outside the town for a fight? Then Assad is definitely guilty of sending his tanks and soldiers into "civilian populated areas". So is every government dealing with American and Saudi funded militant islam. Sorry to fall short of your weird code of honor.
