Twitter had a different story to tell, bad news for the Syrian opposition! It seems that the tough army guy general Maher al-Assad is not dead, nor has he been assassinated. Maher is commander of the Republican Guard and the army’s elite Fourth Armored Division, which together with Syria’s secret police form the core of the country’s security forces. He is also a member of the Central Committee of the Baath Party’s Syrian Regional Branch. He is thought by some to be the second most powerful man in Syria after his brother Bashar, the current President And what does he do?
He is palling around with cult singer George Wassouf, not clear, where but it looks like the two are buddies. Maher has not been seen in public for over four years, but the images surfaced to tell a different story about the general. George Wassouf visited the Assad family and took some pictures. Now, Wassouf did give a recent interview in Egypt to that dumb host who thinks he is the shit. Now that dumb host shared those images on Twitter. We now know these pictures are recent, and they were take in the first week of June 2014.
contrary to popular belief, Maher did not get killed in the 2012 explosion at the National Security building. I know one thing, Maher has benefited from Syria and the regime, but still he believes in a set of ideals and fantasies shared with him by many among the Arab world. now, those images are not old, we know this because George Wassouf has that medical condition after surviving that stroke.
