Fixed it for you.

Look at Iraq - there never was any “more democratic and better” Iraq. There was ISIS shortly after Hussein is gone. And there would not have been a “better and more democratic” Syria. ISIS would have also been there - and much more dangerous and scary than it ever was. A full blown terroristic state, with military, economy, ideology, etc. You should ask yourself - what would have been going on in Europe in that case. Hence you should consider a big monument to Putin and Assad in Dam Square in Amsterdam.
De Dam is reserved for remembering all our fallen people since the start of WWII, so no place there for "honoring" common criminals and dictators whose deeds are as despicable as those who killed the fallen we remember there.
