Syria is currently a de facto monarchy, because Bashar al-Assad inherited the presidency of Syria from his father. I would like Bashar al-Assad to be crowned King of Syria. Assad is after all descended from Alawite nobility. Napoleon and King Zog of Albania were both born as noblemen, and Reza Shah Pahlavi and Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte (King Karl XIV Johan of Sweden) were even born as commoners. Napoleon, Zog, Reza Shah Pahlavi and Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte were excellent monarchs.

The bad press of Bashar al-Assad is very unfair. He is the best option for Syria. He is far better than PYD, the Syrian branch of PKK, a Kurdish Communist terrorist movement, and the Islamist Syrian rebels, which Turkey supports. Assad is a dictator, but he is a secularist, and he isn't a Communist. In addition, Russia and Iran supports him, so Western condemnation of Assad doesn't matter.
Syria ought to be readmitted into the Arab League, and Saudi Arabia ought to participate in the reconstruction of Syria in order to limit Iranian influence in Syria. Relations between Saudi Arabia and Russia are rapidly improving. Saudi Arabia will definitely support Assad being crowned King of Syria.

I don't support restoration of the Hashemite monarchy of Syria, because the Hashemite monarchy of Syria was very short-lived, and Faisal, the Hashemite prince, who was elected King of Syria, later became King of Iraq.

While we’re destroying our cause by making genocidal maniacs Kings, Kim Jong Un ought to be made Korean Emperor. Hell, why stop with dictators who took over from their dictator fathers? Why stop with living dictators? Hitler, Stalin, Mao...all could be elevated to the ranks to Royalty.

Napoleon was the First Consul of the French Republic, before he became an emperor. Zog was the President of the Republic of Albania, before he became a king. In addition, Assad belongs to Alawite nobility. Some dictators of republics are of royal descent. Nursultan Nazarbayev, the dictator of Kazakhstan, is a descendant of Genghis Khan, and Putin might be a descendant of Rurik through the Putyatin family.

Call me crazy but I just think a president-turned-King that has a little less history of gassing/murdering/starving their population is a much better look for our cause...and yes even if murderous dictator is descended from minor nobility.

Bashar al-Assad is a brutal dictator, but he is fighting against Kurdish Communist terrorists and Syrian Islamist terrorists. I'm sick and tired of Western propaganda against Assad. You Westerners like to condemn Middle Eastern dictatorships, but you don't understand the fact, that we Middle Easterners usually have to choose the least bad option. KRG (the autonomous regional government of South (Iraqi) Kurdistan) and the State of Israel are the best political entities in the Middle East.

The Middle East might be better off if some in the region focused more of their energy on overthrowing their dictatorships rather than lecturing the UK on abolishing the House of Lords “because its undemocratic”.

I'm not living in a dictatorship. I'm living in South (Iraqi) Kurdistan, which is a democracy with free elections and a democratically elected unicameral parliament. And I don't want Assad to be overthrown. He is the best option for my fellow Kurds in Syria, who have suffered under Communist rule until recently. I have mentioned my opposition to the Iranian regime and my support for a Pahlavi restoration in Iran several times on this forum.

Quite confused logic. Happy to live with the benefits of the overthrowal of one brutal dictator (with Western help), while advocating that others need to be happy with what they’ve got. Then even go one step further and make said dictator their King.

Comparing Assad to Saddam is wrong. Saddam tried to exterminate my people, and he invaded Iran and Kuwait unprovoked. Assad has never tried to exterminate the Kurds, and he has never invaded another country unprovoked. I oppose US intervention in Syria, because USA supports Kurdish Communists in Syria. USA has never supported Communists in South (Iraqi) Kurdistan. Assad oppressed the Syrian Kurds before the war, but Russia wants Assad to grant the Syrian Kurds more linguistic and cultural rights. When Putin says "Jump", Assad asks: "How high?".

No, it’s not.

Just because one mass murderer hasn’t directly harmed you or “your people” doesn’t make them any better than the other mass murderer. None of these dictators directly impact me or my family but that doesn’t make them any less tyrannical.

Assad has never tried to exterminate any ethnic group or religious group, unlike Saddam, and he has never invaded another country unprovoked. US support for PYD is utterly wrong.
