Slaughter in Syria

There are some things that you can never 'un-see'. Add to that list a man in the clip at the bottom of the post who's jaw has been blown off and is apparently cognisant of his situation. His crime was openly expressing a desire for freedom, or paying respects to others who have been murdered by the Syrian regime.

Our silence is appalling. Non-action is not acceptable. That does not mean we need to start bombing as there are many tools in our kit, but this silence is tantamount to acceptance.

How is Syria being punished, with a spot on the UN Human Rights Council; you can not make this stuff up.

  1. Israel bombs the shit out of palestinians, kills 300 children in gaza. Saudi Arabia ( far more repressive country than Iran) bombs tortures people in bahrain as well as in its own country. Ditto Yemen, Jordan all the other US backed despotisms. Including Mubarak in Egypt for years and until recently Libya. The new U.S puppet regime in Iraq has built a huge internal torture apparatus that rivals Saddams. and The US itself has made the torture and arrest of people worldwide without evidence a part of it's policy.

    The U.S. does not care about democracy, never has. The only problem with Assad for the US is that he less reliably does the west's bidding then the other mid east despotisms. the US is a corrupt, evil empire that the people of the middle east may one day shake off, along with the little godfathers like Assad.
