Of course I take the side of the rebels, the people Bashar Assad has called terrorists. Now that people in Assad's inner circle have strapped bombs to their chest, can the war last much longer before he's vaporized?
Assad has a weird head and neck. His neck is long, which makes his pinhead seem even smaller. I've never met Assad, so I don't know for sure whether he has a small head. I just know it looks odd in photos. Also, he has a very sparse mustache. It looks like he doesn't quite have the hormones to grow a full cookie duster. It's kind of like the mustache of a young teenager, maybe a 13-year-old.
He has a weak mouth too. As far as dictators go, he isn't very imposing physically. Saddam Hussein looked evil. Hosni Mubarak looked powerful. Gadhafi looked insane. Maybe that's why Assad's so brutal, to make up for the fact he looks like a total wuss.
