Agree with your sarcasm. He should be nominated for noble peace prize for not massacring the protestor like the Syrian army is doing. He has kept the order with minimal violence exerted to the provokating protestors. He has done his job. However, it could have been sorted out with talks and nicely tell the protestors to back off, but in my opinion, not possible.
