Why I am damn proud to be Syrian

by Ammar February 24, 2012

Growing up the son of Syrian exiles is a unique experience that is unknown to the non-Syrian community; it’s a “smell but don’t touch” policy.

Syria to me is like this mythical land of fantasies where everyone around me would tell me how great it was, but it was something I only dreamt of. The other Syrian kids would be able to go visit, spend time with their extended family, travel the great cities of Syria, indulge in the delicious foods, and just generally have a blast there. But why not me?

Conservatives call on Obama to intervene in Syria

by John Mak February 18, 2012

 

Fifty-six leading conservative foreign-policy experts wrote an open letter Friday to U.S. President Barack Obama calling on him to directly aid the Syrian opposition and protect the lives of Syrian civilians.

"For eleven months now, the Syrian people have been dying on a daily basis at the hands of their government as they seek to topple the brutal regime of Bashar al-Assad.  As the recent events in the city of Homs-in which hundreds of Syrians have been killed in a matter of days-have shown, Assad will stop at nothing to maintain his grip on power," wrote the experts.

Family Slaughtered Inside Home

by John Mak February 11, 2012

A new video coming out of the city of Homs shows an entire family that was slaughtered inside their home. They were discovered 10 days later. A horrific scene unfolds. The father was killed away from the rest of the family, while they watched. Likely, he was humiliated and tortured in front of his wife and kids, then the wife and kids were scared into a corner and had their heads covered with hoods, then gunned down. This family was found, but their are hundreds of others that are yet to be discovered. Don't watch this video if you are at work:

by John Mak February 9, 2012

Opposition forces and defecting soldiers have stated that they have seen a large stockpile of chemical weapons being stockpiled in a school building in the city of Homs.

Violence Escalates in Syria's Deadliest Assault on Civilians

by John Mak February 4, 2012

 

To mark the 30 year anniversary of the Hama Massacre of February 1982, wherein Assad's forces leveled an entire town killing over 50,000 inhabitants, raping children, women, and boys, and torturing and inprisoning over 100,000 others, Assad (the son) sends his forces to the city of Hama to shell, bombard, rocket, and slaughter the inhabitants. The numbers aren't clear, but estimates put the true death toll at about 400, over 1500 injured, many of whom will die from their injuries, and another 3000 buried under rubble of collapsed buildings. Complete indiscriminate killing. Watch the interview on CNN from a man in Hama:
