President wants everyone but himself to pay more

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has posted on his Facebook page a letter from a Virginia state senator praising the Syrian army and offering encouragement in the government's three-year battle against rebel forces.
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell faces some difficult decisions when it comes time to sign bills passed during this year's General Assembly, including whether to sign or amend a transportation bill that riled conservatives and could further alienate some members of his own party.
"It is obvious that the war in Syria has largely been fought by vicious war criminals linked to al-Qaeda," Mr. Black wrote, characterizing the rebels as "criminals" and accusing them of mass executions, beheadings and even cannibalism.
"I cannot explain how Americans, who suffered so grievously at the hands of al-Qaeda, were tricked into supporting the jihadists," Mr. Black said. "But I do know that many U.S. officials disagree with equipping and training the terrorists who penetrate your borders from the Kingdom of Jordan and through Turkey."
