Video Documentation of Syrian Brutality
Arutz Sheva ^ | 4/6/11 | Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Human Rights Watch video has posted a video documenting Syrian brutality against peaceful protesters as Syrian President Bashar Assad escalates force, using helicopters to bomb the city of Hama.

WARNING: The video includes scenes that are not suitable for young children.

Friday’s protests were dedicated to the children of the uprising, and The Local Coordinating Committees in Syria reported that more than 72 children have been killed by security forces.

“This week, at least seven children died at the hands of the security forces,” the Committees stated, including a 10-year-old who died after her school bus was shelled in Homs and a four-year-old shot and killed on her home."

The death toll neared 1,500 Saturday after Syrian secret police, soldiers and hired thugs gunned down dozens of demonstrators.

Syria cut Internet service Friday night but restored it after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issued a statement that “the Syrian government has a history of restricting the Internet in an attempt to prevent the Syrian people from accessing and sharing information. The Syrian government must understand that attempting to silence its population cannot prevent the transition currently taking place. We believe that even in the face of significant obstacles, the Syrian people will -- and should -- find a way to make their voices heard.”

I could not look at this video...

But I do not understand the US Gov’t contradictions; nor is it clear to me, who has gained control of our Country...

Obama team cuts billions in US defense; gives billions to unknown Libyan rebels; because their “Leader is killing its own people”…

Yet, at the same time… Obama Team sends our Military (Gates) to affirm our support and merge with Chinese Military ON THE EXACT ANNIVERSARY DATE OF TIANANMEN SQUARE MASSACRE???... http://bit.ly/lxs3gL

Syria is over-looked… Mexico is over looked… China is over-looked…

The “United States People” seem to be this Administration’s enemies... But are they in with a specific group, who is targeting int’l Liquidations?

One might wonder if liquidation going slow for the US; in coordination with the crush of our 2nd amendment? I welcome any thoughts....
