The Bloodbath in Syria

Yesterday, Bastard Assad’s thugs/dogs killed at least 75 people in the bloodiest day of the Syrian Revolution. Amnesty International put the day’s death toll at 75, mirroring reports from witnesses to AP. Bastard Assad’s thugs/dogs fired bullets and tear gas Friday at tens of thousands of protesters across the country. Among the dead were a 70-year-old man and two boys ages 7 and 10, Amnesty International said. In the southern town of Izraa, a man ran carrying the body of a young boy, whose hair was matted with blood from a gaping wound on his head, as another child wept and shouted, “My brother!”. In other towns, protesters scattered for cover from sniper bullets, then dragged corpses through the streets. The death toll was likely to rise, raising fears that there will be an explosion of violence today as relatives bury their dead in funerals that in the past have turned into new protests. Ammar Qurabi, head of Syria’s National Organization for Human Rights, said another 20 people were missing. Friday’s toll was double that of the previous deadliest day of the uprising, on April 8, when 37 were killed around the country. “Bullets started flying over our heads like heavy rain,” said one witness in Izraa, where police opened fire on protesters marching in front of the mayor’s office. The town is located in southern Daraa province where the uprising kicked off in mid-March. Like Iran and Khamenei’s regime, Syria has expelled journalists and restricted access to trouble spots.

Syrian dictator, Batard Assad, is a real friend and follower of Khamenei and his regime. On Friday, the state-run news agency SANA (Syrian Arab News Agency) said masked gunmen on motorcycles !! opened fire on the guards of a government office in Izraa, killing eight bystanders. SANA also said two members of the security forces were killed “by armed criminal groups” !! one in the Muadamiya district of Damascus, the other in the Baba Amr district of Homs. Even before Friday prayers, soldiers stopped cars and buses driving into the capital and checked drivers and passengers. Bastard Assad’s tactics and propaganda is exactly like what we have in Iran. They use of mass murder, mass arrest, snipers, and intimidation tactics. Further out in Moadamiyah, a small town about six miles south of Damascus, a huge ring of troops encircled the town. Soldiers took positions on rooftops and outside mosques, while others peered from behind barricades of sandbags and giant tyres. Security forces later opened fire, according to rights groups and witnesses. Before Friday’s violence rights groups had said more than 220 people had been killed since unrest broke out on 18 March in the southern city of Deraa. Now More than 300 people are believed to have been killed since the unrest began six weeks ago. After prayers finished in Deraa yesterday, several thousand protesters gathered chanting anti-Assad slogans. “The Syrian people will not be subjugated. Go away doctor (Assad). We will trample on you and your slaughterous regime” they shouted. Most of Syria’s 23 million people were born or grew up under the strict control of the state of emergency, i.e. 50 years of emergency rule !!!!, which gives the regime a free hand to arrest people without charge, control on the media and eavesdrop on telecommunications.

In Washington, Obama condemned Bastard Assad and said the regime’s “outrageous” use of violence against the protesters must “end now.” . But some western experts say: “For western and regional governments, the key question is a more self-interested one: Is Assad’s fall desirable? The unspoken answer is mostly “No”. The resulting policy may be termed the Syrian sell-out. Unlike Egypt, where the US and Britain definitively took sides in urging Hosni Mubarak to stand down, and unlike Libya, where they have intervened militarily to assist the opposition, Washington and London have taken no concrete steps to bolster the Syrian demonstrators or punish the regime. No sanctions, no asset freezes, no embargos, no aid cuts, no diplomatic disengagement, and certainly no no-fly zone. It’s exactly like Iran’s case and what the US and the West did about Iran and its Islamic-fascist dictator, Khamenei Turkey believes chaos in Syria could revive separatist agitation among the country’s Kurdish minority. I-s-r-a-e-l worries a new Syrian government might push more aggressively for the return of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. Saudi Arabia is opposed, in principle, to anything that smacks of democracy. And the EU is Syria’s largest trading partner, and Europe buys Syrian oil, and have a bearing.”
