Clearly, if a President needs to kill people who oppose him after he's reigned for 26 years and if the only way the President can keep his position is by using extreme means and oppression, then it's pretty obvious that the people want him out of power. But, that's not the way dictatorships work. Acting out against protestors and using riot gear, rubber bullets, gas, etc. has been used here and has promoted, escalated, and prolonged conflict, has injured people, damaged/ destroyed property, or caused death. Before we tell other nations how to act, we need to clean up our own government's behavior.
