The Daily Telegraph for the 13th of July, 2012 ran the following article SYRIA USES TANKS, HELICOPTERS IN MASSACRE of which only a portion is posted for this blog. The entire article may be read at http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/breaking-news/more-than-100-killed-in-syria-massacre/story-e6freuz9-1226425037674 . The article said “Earlier on Thursday the Britain-based observatory reported that “regime forces pounded Treimsa” killing eight civilians and one Free Syrian Army rebel.
The Syrian Revolutionary General Commission had reported that one of the Treimsa victims was a doctor shot dead while trying to help the wounded.
“The village school was totally destroyed,” a Hama-based activist calling himself Abu Ghazi told AFP via Skype.
“Every month, there is a major attack somewhere in Hama province. Arbitrary detentions happen every day,” the activist said.
The observatory said more than 17,000 people had been killed since the uprising erupted in March last year.
It is not possible to independently verify death tolls. The United Nations stopped compiling figures at the end of 2011.”
Now all of the above is quoted to say what is occurring in Syria is sad but what does the world expect? A government, whether democratically elected or not is under threat. Think about it. If several thousand Australian citizens rebelled in a war-like manner against the government in power, as the Syrians have, what do you think would occur? If several thousand American citizens rebelled in a war-like manner against the present government, as those in Syria have, how do you think they would be dealt with? Whatyareckon?
