The website for the Syrian Arab News Agency has a section called "Mr President". I'm not kidding. Could you imagine how ridiculous it would be if the BBC had a section for, "Her Royal Highness"? And speaking of the ridiculous, check out this piece of legislature that has been approved by "Mr President":

President al-Assad Issues Laws on Establishing Basic Rules Necessary for Safety of Environment and Syrian Company for Electronic Payments
So the country is falling to pieces whilst his security services rape and pillage their way across cities, and this man thinks that the country needs legislature to protect the environment from pollution and to regulate electronic payments online? I shake my head in despair whenever I think back and remember how I believed this guy was OK. Mea culpa...
