There is nothing like being taunted by an 11 year-old, especially when you are the President of the United States and its the son of Syria’s President Assad.
From Hafez al-Assad on Facebook:
12 hours we waited…48 hours they said, we’re waiting…they may have the best army in the world, maybe the best airplanes, ships, tanks than ours, but soldiers? No one has soldiers like the ones we do in Syria, if you ask me what rank would I rank American “soldiers” I wouldn’t rank them the worst because the worst are soldiers, but America doesn’t have soldiers, what it has is some cowards with new technology who claim themselves liberators, they said they supported the “revolution” but actually they made it, right now we’re all Syrian it doesn’t matter if your with or against because that’s democracy, the abilty to express yourself in your own way so when people say that they are against the “regime” it’s fine but there’s a difference between those people and the people who claim our flag green, it’s like an offense to the country, but the worst is people who accuse the army of killing them, they accuse these men who are willing to risk they’re lives and die to keep us safe, of killing us, well when these people say that “the army is gonna end because America will attack” I can say that when America attacks it’s gonna attack every Syrian, with, against, terrorists, the army.
The New York Times said this:
A Facebook post said to be written by the 11-year-old son of the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, and “liked” or commented on by several people who appear to be the children and grandchildren of other senior members of Mr. Assad’s government, may offer a glimpse into the mindset of Syria’s ruling elite as the country braces for a potential Western strike in response to a chemical weapons attack on Aug. 21.
It is impossible to confirm whether the Facebook account does, in fact, belong to the son, Hafez al-Assad, and aspects of it invite doubt. For example, the owner of the account wrote that he was a graduate of Oxford University and a player for a Barcelona soccer team, neither of which would be likely to appear on the résumé of an 11-year-old boy in Damascus.
But those claims could also be read as the ambitions of a child, and there are reasons to believe that the account may actually belong to Hafez.

Bashar al-Assad’s Son Hafez Assad Just Wrote This Facebook Post, and It’s Insane
The post was “liked” or commented on by several people who appear to be the children and grandchildren of other senior members of Assad’s government. Fans of the message appear to include the son and daughter of Assef Shawkat, the former deputy minister of defense, Sally and Ali Khierbek – members of the powerful Alawite Khierbek family and deputy vice president for Security, Mohammad Nasif Khierbek.
One commenter wrote: “Like father like son! Well said future President!”
It is unclear if the Facebook post is authentic, and was actually written by Hafez Assad. The post is riddled with spelling and grammatical errors. A Syrian journalist with extensive knowledge of these Facebook accounts has reportedly verified their authenticity.
