Some defectors of the Syrian regime

I just wrote this in Arabic: if it funny if you think about it.  Some of the defectors from the Syrian regime say this: that they were supporters of the repressive regime and serviced the regime for decades and appeared on TV to defend the regime and its crimes but that one day, they stumbled on democracy and freedom and fell in love.  And I am a new person now, they say.  I am talking to you from Saudi Arabia (or Qatar) and I love the new me, who is an advocate of democracy.  I also happen to defend the regime which sponsors me now and I defend it also...on TV, they add.
