Syrian thug’s son dares US on Facebook: ‘I want them to attack sooo much’


A Facebook posting said to be from the 11-year-old son of Syrian President Bashar Assad is making waves in international journalistic circles as young Hafez Assad boasts that he can’t wait for a U.S. attack on his country because “we were born to fight and resist.”

“Victory is ours in the end no matter how much time it takes” writes Master Assad (namesake of the late blood-soaked dictator who sired the current blood-soaked dictator.)


In other words, he sounds like any spirited 11-year-old boy does when rumors of wars start making the rounds. (He also sounds a lot like a former Iraqi information minister.)

If Facebook had been around in 1861, 11-year-old boys in Virginia and South Carolina would have been trading posts about how they couldn’t wait to whip the Yankees.

If Facebook had been around in 1941, 11-year-old boys in Hiroshima and Nagasaki would have been bragging about how the Americans couldn’t show their face in the Pacific anymore after what happened in Hawaii.

Invincibility is part of the world of 11-year-old boys.

The post from Assad fils is also getting attention because its commenters apparently include the children or grandchildren of other top Syrian officials, according to the New York Times. (Surprise! They think Syria’s tough, too.)

And it’s being treated with way more respect than it deserves by international publications like the Daily Mail, which went as far as calling a reference to Hezbollah’s fight against Israel a “chilling taunt.” (Nothing an 11-year-old boy says is a “chilling taunt.”)

Chances are, young Hafez will learn better when he grows up.

His chances of growing up at all are another question.

    Obama was supported by Syria’s Government so he could run for Congress and then the Presidency. The picture of Obama and his Syrian counterparts mysteriously was taken off the Archives of the LA Times back on Aug 1st, 2008.

    LOL. (SAD SIGH.)
    Damned if we do,.. Damned if we don’t.
    Probably a good thing I’m not in charge,.. because I’m a monster and a bad man when it comes to people doing things because they can and then talking crap about it.
    A child gets a pass for being this stupid,.. but if the adults he’s listening to cop the same attitude/mindset,.. I’d have no problem bombing them back to the stone age.

    I think we should send them our prayers, and hope that someday they will not want to continue this fighting.
