    Syria Crisis: At Least 50 Killed In Homs
    Reuters | Posted: 05/25/2012 3:56 pm Updated: 05/25/2012 5:00 pm






    BEIRUT, May 25 (Reuters) - At least 50 people, including 13 children, were killed when Syrian forces attacked the town of Houla in Homs province on Friday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and activists said.

    Activists said clashes erupted in the town when Syrian forces opened fire on a protest against the rule of President Bashar al-Assad and killed one protester.

    "The soldiers are shelling Houla right now, the casualties are huge," said activist Ahmad Kassem. He said opposition fighters fired back, inflicting casualties on the soldiers and destroying five tanks.
    Houla is a cluster of four villages and towns north of Homs.

    If you go back and compare the world outrage and amount of news media coverage comparing the israel stoppage of the invading gaza flotilla a few years back, the demonstrations, protests, etc., around the world, and in major cities in the US - particularly by groups pretending to be human rights groups or anti-war ones, and look at their silence today given these massacres of some 15,000 people, one can only be astounded.

    Compare the NYT coverage, or the relentless demonstrations by various far left groups like international answer, code pink, etc...Where are the anti-syrian protests? Where is the talk of freedom flotillas to rescue women and children, etc?

    All pretty telling about what their agendas really are...
