Among the statements on Hafez al-Assad’s Facebook page are "America doesn't have soldiers, what it has is some cowards with new technology who claim themselves liberators."
And "I just want them to attack sooo much, because I want them to make this huge mistake of beginning something that they don't know the end of it."
The New York Times and Foreign Policy report the page may indeed be the 11 year olds since the “likes” come from other members of the Assad family as well as children of other Syrian political figures.
Other writing on the page includes "they don't know our land like we do, no one does, victory is ours in the end no matter how much time it takes."
The page may or may not be the young boys but David Kenner of Foreign Policy writes “at the very least, it was written by someone doing a convincing impersonation of what the family believes."
