Syrian protesters wave the opposition Syrian flag and a placard in Arabic that reads, “no,” during a protest against the Syrian presidential elections, as others line up to vote in expatriate voting ahead of the June 3 poll, near the Syrian embassy in Amman, Jordan, Wednesday, May 28, 2014. The Syrian opposition and its Western allies have denounced the election as a sham designed to lend Assad a veneer of electoral legitimacy. The government in Damascus, meanwhile, has touted the vote as the political solution to the three-year-long conflict that began as an uprising against Assad’s rule. (AP Photo/Mohammad Hannon)
