Them children sure make some mean terrorists, yup
Way to stick it to the man, Bann! I'm sure Bashar is being whisked away to his bunker as we speak. On average the daily death toll is half of what it was yesterday(52 confirmed since this last incident), but thanks for noticing this time!Bann says those responsible for perpetrating this crime must be held to account:
UN can't do anything because Russia and China will block all serious moves against Assad.
IMHO UN is completely useless money sink these days and it would be better if it was just disassembled.
Before the body count was confirmed by the UN observers and manner that they had been killed from news reports it seems the state TV was using the video the opposition had put out of the bodies saying they had been killed anti goverment forces that had gone into the town and killed pro government civilians..
We all know that everything Syrian TV says is a lie and everything AJZ and the "activists" tell us is the truth. Finally, the epic battle of good vs evil that we 've been waiting for.
So after the shelling the kids were killed with knives??
"Everywhere [the UN monitors] go, something happens to them," Moustafa Abdul Salam told the Observer in the northern Syrian village of Sarji. <-- yeah!!
Already you have the Americans saying that al-Qaida might be at work here, so that means the regime are winning. And when they feel that way they will behave even more like savages." <--- THEY ARE
"Things are never as they seem here," said a senior Lebanese member of parliament. "Al-Qaida in Beirut very much fits the storyline for Syria itself and the pro-Syrian parties in Lebanon." If the Assad regime let these people out of prison, they must have had a use for them — even an unwitting one.
Not only in Syria but Assad is pulling the strings in Lebanon as well. Oh there is free press in Lebanon btw.
More and more propaganda.
Bravo instigate slaughter and propaganda coup mission accomplished!!
The settlement is home mainly to members of Syria's Sunni Islam majority, but borders areas dominated by President Assad's minority Alawite sect.
While eyewitness reports of the violence were confused and often contradictory, it followed an anti-government demonstration in Houla after Friday's midday prayers.
Some claimed that rebel gunmen had earlier courted trouble by opening fire on checkpoints manned by government troops. Whatever the spark, the scale of the ensuing attack appears to have been brutal even by the standards of the Assad regime.
What is it about?
"We are calling urgently on the Friends of Syria to create a military alliance, outside of the UN Security Council, to carry out targeted strikes against Assad's gangs and the symbols of his regime," Mr Sheikh said.
I finally agree with the man. Open warfare is better at this stage.
Otherwise this will happen over and over again.
Meanwhile, a Russian arms shipment seems to be en-route to Assad.
Yeah, because the Syrian security forces are totally above killing infants with small arms even though they shell cities all day to punish the opposition. Flawless logic right there.So after the shelling the kids were killed with knives??
I'm sure all those protesters and opposition gunmen "instigated" the violence so they could have more of their neighborhoods massacred and Hillary Clinton can go pander to Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani about creating a military alliance. Derp.Bravo instigate slaughter and propaganda coup mission accomplished!!
From my understanding from some of the tweets that have come out is that first the Syrian forces attacked the outskirts of the town going house to house but then pulled back and started shelling the residential areas. and that the kids killed with the knifes was when goverment forces were doing the house to house searches on the outer boarder of the town but then pulled back and started the heavy shelling, that is what I am getting from a lot of the news stories and tweets.
It seems that the Syrian government has started shelling Houla once more, right now twitter is getting flooded with tweets about it..
