Syrian Uprising and President Assad Depicted in Cartoons

Since the outbreak of protests in Syria, the Arab press has featured numerous cartoons reflecting the brutality of President Bashar Assad's regime. Many cartoons portrayed the bloodshed and massacre of Syrian civilians, while others depicted the weakening stance of the regime in the face of the protestors' demands for reform. Other cartoons reflected the regime's evasion of a diplomatic solution to the crisis, while yet others reflected the general stalemate that currently prevails in Syria.
