Assad must fall

The situation in Syria with Assad is so dire. The world’s powers can’t ignore Assad’s tyranny. In the fight against ISIS, the evils committed by, and in the name of, a ruthless dictator cannot go unchecked.

Russia and Iran backing Assad creates a toxic environment which is conducive to ISIS. A survey of Syrian refugees in Germany found that 70% of them were running from Assad, and not ISIS. Assad is the most prolific creator of refugees in his country. How many children need to die escaping a ruthless tyrant for his regime to be recognised world over for what it is? There doesn’t exist a dichotomy between fighting Assad and ISIS for they reinforce each other.
