Once again, I will say that I love kangaroos and koalas but hate venomous insects, spiders and snakes, especially the human variety.
The Syrian soccer team, aka the “barrel bomb” team, was eliminated from the Asian Cup championship after losing a match against Australia today in Emirates. Thousands of free Syrians are happy for this defeat by kangaroos.
Many Assad thugs and loyalists have been commenting on social media that the final score of 3-2 is not fair and that there is no justice in that. Not fair in what regard one may ask?
To understand their comments requires insight into the mind of their idol Assad who believes that he is God’s anointed leader of Syria and the only fair outcome of any battle is the one where he comes out on top.
But today’s loss was fair and carried not even a taste of the oppression and injustice experienced by millions of Syrians for decades under the Assads.
Let those loyalist spectators at al Ein Stadium in UAE cry, even though their cries will not equal the tiniest moment of the terror and grief experienced by a child who lost his mother and father in front of his eyes after a barrel bomb attack by Assad’s brutal air forces.
This is the second time that the Australian soccer team has filled our hearts with thoughts of happiness as well as vindication. It is a bad day for Assad and his thugs.
I look forward to the day when Syria will be represented by a fair soccer team that includes those players who were forced into becoming refugees by the brutal Assad regime.
Congratulations Australia and thank you for delivering happiness to millions of free Syrians and a well-deserved taste of defeat to those who remain loyal to the true oppressor of Syria.
