Kicking off April 2012 was the ongoing massacre in Syria at the hands of Bashar Assad’s armed forces. He made a mockery of the UN 6 Point Peace Plan by ratcheting up the pressure on his opponenets, just as he was supposed to be laying down his guns in a cease fire, to be started by a withdrawal of troops from town centers, and more. What happened instead was that he killed more Syrians, at a faster clip.
The Daily Dose thought to caricature this failure of diplomacy in the name of saving democracy, by burying democacy in a grave, with Assad standing above, giving the old April Fool’s phrase, in this Assad Accepts. April Fool’s Cartoon.
