    Hama massacre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Yeah, all those women and children and old men were sneaking around cutting peoples throats in the middle of the night, yeah right.

    But back then the Syrian government was able to keep a lid on the news of what is really going on.

    Not likely these days. While I suspect Assad may hold on with the support of Iran, China and Russia and other similar criminal regimes, in the long run I think they lose, though they may out last Isreal in the current form of a Jewish state.
