Sham election*

You gotta wonder what's the deal with that 4.9% that didn't vote for Assad. Why were they allowed to vote for someone else when so many others were not?

Or did they make up the just under 5% number made up because the Syrian government thought a 100% vote would not be credible? Are they really so dumb to think that a 95.1% vote is credible?


*Yeah I know I used this title before. When a country is colloquially referred to as "Sham" in its native language (شام = "Sham" = Damascus or generally Syria) how can any election not be a sham?
