First of all, let me bring to your attention that when I refer to America and to Syria, I am refering to political America and political Syria. Second of all, there is a difference between great, greater and greatest, and between bad, worse and worst. When it comes to America, I don't necessarily think they are the GREATEST, but what concerns me is that they are greater than Syria, and yes Syria is worse (or perhaps the worst) - at least when it comes to respecting human rights and freedoms of their citizens. So in that regard, sorry to disappoint you, but lets wake up to ourselves, the situation of Syria's sociopolitical freedom is no way comparable to the United States.
