Kucinich visits Bashar Assad in Syria and praises the country for taking Iraqi refugees. It’s one thing for an American to be opposed to the Iraq War or U.S. foreign policy in general, but it never ceases to amaze me that alleged pacifism often leads people to embrace violent foreign dictators, in this case the leader of a nation that is one of largest state sponsors of terrorism, which is disrupting peace in Lebanon and Israel by funding Hezbollah and assassinating any strong independent leaders in the neighboring country. The only explanation is that it isn’t pacifism that drives people like Kucinich, it’s contrarianism.
