And not a royal f*ck was given.
Britain on Thursday withdrew the Syrian ambassador’s invitation to the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, saying the regime’s crackdown on protesters made his presence “unacceptable,” according to a report from AFP.
An estimated 453 people have been killed under President Bashar al-Assad’s brutal repression of anti-regime protesters. This comes as dozens of videos posted on YouTube portray what looks like an essential massacre of demonstrators in various parts of the country.
Bottom line: people in Syria are being brutally murdered on a daily basis, and so far the most striking foreign response has been to disinvite the ambassador from an event that’s turned into the most overhyped media dribble since Charlie Sheen’s drug-addled meltdown-turned-pop-culture-god-winning-spectacle.
And peeps, don’t forget to buy your own bottle of Royal Wedding day air to mark this spectacular occasion!
