Another day, another dozen or so innocent Syrians killed by their own government because they were guilty of the crime of not accepting President Assad as their one and only king. Syrian military forces swept through villages, seized young men, tied them up and placed a bullet through their head or body. Am estimated 27 young men were killed and dozens more wounded as President Bashad makes clear that he is the power and he intends to remain the power.
President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are weighing options regarding policy. Clinton insists she wants to negotiate, but negotiations require at least two parties, and that is not in sight in Syria. White House spokesperson, Jay Carney told the media: “we still believe that a political solution us what is needed.” He hesitated for a few moments and then added concerning use of military forces: “But, we don’t rule out additional means.”
