'Tank assault on Syria's Hama kills at least 95' - Dozens killed as Syria army storms Hama - Yahoo! News Dozens killed as Syria army storms Hama "AMMAN (Reuters) - Syrian tanks firing shells and machineguns stormed the city of Hama Sunday, killing at least 45 civilians in a move to crush demonstrations against President Bashar al-Assad's rule, residents and activists said. Assad's forces began their assault on the city, scene of a 1982 massacre, at dawn after besieging it for nearly a month. The official state news agency said scores of were on rooftops and "shooting intensively to terrorize citizens." But residents said tanks and snipers were shooting at unarmed residential districts, where inhabitants had set up makeshift road blocks to try and stop their advance, and that an irregular Alawite militia loyal to Assad, known as 'shabbiha' accompanied the invading forces in buses." ============================================= Where is that prick, spineless empty-suit "president" we have? It is like 1938 all over again - we have a chance to stop a holocaust, and this awful, fake regime right here in the US remains silent while thousands are arrested, tortured, and killed. Is this how one "earns" a nobel prize - sit silently, doing NOTHING? Has obama no shame, no humanity? What kind of person, let alone leader of the free world, remain completely invisible while the tanks of the #$%$ad criminal dictatorship machine gun and shell unarmed civilians? What is he waiting for?
