Seeing as how Syrian people were barred from voting at their embassies by EU governments I think we can take with a pinch of salt any criticism from that quarter.

The Syrian people have the right to elect whomever they want to represent them. If that person is Assad it is none of US or EU's business.

Everybody knows US is mad that Assad won't let them rape and pillage Syria's natural resources. Good for him.

If US and EU want some oil go buy it on the open market and pay market price for it instead of stealing.

This whole election is a complete farce. Assad is only holding then in government controlled areas, and is set to win a 7th term, because people are too scared to vote against the Assad government
