The Day in Cartoons: Syrian peace plan - Hajo de Reijger

Syrian peace plan Hajo de Reijger

When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always. Mahatma Gandhi

I keep Gandhi's quote close, but in truth, I have the luxury of turning the channel when the news from Syria turns bloodier and more desperate every day.

I read the 2011 Vogue article about Bashar Hafez al-Assad and Asma al-Assa. In light of the violence, the article is beyond ironic and maddening. So are the al-Assad's recent emails. The end of this regime's tyranny cannot come soon enough. And it is coming.

Bashar Hafez al-Assad, Asma al-Assad, and all tyrants and their supporters, this song is for you.
