As I have mentioned II you in private comments, Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad is what I would like to term an "asswipe." The man is a Medical Officer who has taken the Hippocratic Oath not II harm human life & yet II stay in power, he has murdered, or at least ordered the murders of 300,000 plus Syrian citizens. He's actually getting to be more brutal than his late father. As for the weak-ass response by the United States Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Democrat-New York: why is she allowing her President to bomb the living hell out of Libya jointly with NATO & the United Nations when the Syrian President is murdering just as many people on the ground per day? My feeling is that its because Libya might have more raw resources than Syria.
Dr. Assad has saved the lives & eyesights of many thousands of patients, as he's an opthamologist by trade thats his job. Frankly no one deserves to die, this boy was just XIII (13) years old, an innocent teenager & he gets offed because he was offering peaceful protest against the Assad regime. Why is a teenage boy being tortured & killed, at XIII he hasn't even begun his life!
It should be noted that NATO & the United Nations are killing just as many people in Libya per day with their bombings, this would include innocent folks such as schoolchildren. Assad when you combine totals with his late father has skillfully & quietly killed more civilians than Colonel Moammar Gadhafi, the Libyan Brother-Leader ever has.
Offended & Sickened,
