Syria says Goodbye to Mishaal!


Saturday October 8, 2011

Friday’s death toll rises to 24 --- Syrian dissidents and activists storm their country’s embassies in London and Vienna and attempt to do in Berlin and Brussels --- 14 protesters are killed as pro-Assad militias open fire on funerals in Homs City, Douma Suburb and Qamishly where 50,000 Kurds took part in the funeral of slain activist Mishaal Tammo. Meanwhile, pro-Assad troops continue to clash with defectors in Idlib, Hama and Homs provinces in central and northern Syria --- Continued wrangling over the roles of different personalities in the SNC leadership leads to the postponement of the scheduled October 7 coming-out party in Cairo.

“Violence won the Libyan rebels NATO backing, while peaceful demonstrations earned the Syrians the world’s sympathytender mercies that they risk forfeiting, explained Ford, should they pick up weapons in self-defense... The fact is that Syria is already embroiled in a conflict that shows no signs of abating. The United Stateswith allies on all of Syrias borders and U.S. soldiers and vital American interests in Iraqhas a stake in what happens in Syria. Its time for the White House to get serious about the dictator in Damascus.”

Sympathy without support is leaving us alone to face a merciless killing machine…
