Yesterday, the official Facebook page for the Syrian President posted a letter received from a Virginia legislator. This letter dealt with the subject of President al-Assad and the ongoing Syrian Civil War. Interestingly, it turned out to be from Senator Dick Black of Loundon County.
Here’s the picture they posted:
As the post on Facebook summarized, “Virginia Senator sent a message to President Al-Assad thanked the Syrian army for heroism, praising his prowess and skill, calling the terrorists “war criminals are linked to Al-Qaeda”, mercenaries are entering Syria to kill the people, adding that few Americans realize they are supporting the same the events of September 11, and that they are themselves massacred civilians and using suicide bombings in Syria to kill women and children.
“The Senator thanked Assad for his ‘respectful with all communities’ while ‘rebel’ wire ‘thieves and criminals and saboteurs’, wishing the Syrian army victories continued in the face of terrorists, blaming its sovereignty thanks personally to Syrian soldiers who protect civilians.”
Personally, I’m somewhat surprised that a state legislator would offer his or her opinions on this subject given that it isn’t a topic over which the Virginia government has any control. Nevertheless, it does offer a perspective that is markedly different from quite a few members of Congress.
So what do you think? Do you agree or disagree with Senator Black’s thoughts?
