The Onion lets “Assad” speak to the American people
“Well, here we are. It’s been two years of fighting, over 100,000 people are dead, there are no signs of this war ending, and a week ago I used chemical weapons on my own people. If you don’t do anything about it, thousands of Syrians are going to die. If you do something about it, thousands of Syrians are going to die. Morally speaking, you’re on the hook for those deaths no matter how you look at it.”—“Bashar al-Assad” in an Onion spoof

I’m not an Onion fan and seldom read anything they post. But this article, So, What’s It Going To Be?, posted August 28, 2013, I thought was quite good. It has been tweeted all around the world several times over.
It’s fake, of course, but that only makes it too true.
Go click on the link and read the words that The Onion has put in Assad’s mouth.
