The next time anyone declares how the true leader can be known by his or her Survival of the Fittest, simply point to Riber Hansson's portrait of Aleppo.
Indeed, Al-Assad and Putin are still alive.
Placing the hand of Death on everyone and everything around them, they crowned evolution with a "d", creating devolution. They are the degenerates leading the world to the Rubble Age.
They are proof that what is often perceived as strength is in truth just veneered cowardice.
The outlook of the one was to bat his own people to death, but he was too weak to do it on his own. The other needed to distract attention from the bleak economy at home following his poor management of the country and the quickie solution was as always to show muscles abroad.
All in all, they proved natural selection doubly wrong.
